PronounEdit

ni

    Shí dóó ni ayóo ałk’is niidlį́.
    You and I are really good friends.
  2. second person singular possessive pronoun yours
    Díí naaltsoos éí ni.
    This book is yours.

Usage notesEdit

The verb in Navajo incorporates information about person, and many sentences may thus not have explicit independent pronouns. For instance:

  • Hooghandi naniná.
  • Ni éí hooghandi naniná.

Both sentences are grammatically complete, and mean essentially the same thing: you are at home. The verb naniná is in the second-person form, so the pronoun can be safely omitted, as in the first sentence. This is similar to pronoun dropping in other languages where the verb specifies person, such as Spanish. Meanwhile, the explicit use of ni in the second sentence emphasizes that the speaker is talking about you. This can be thought of as roughly equivalent to the use of emphasis in English: while the first sentence comes across as you're at home, the second one is more like you, you're at home.

Usage notesEdit

PrefixEdit

ni

  1. Marks a verb's object as 1st person singular.
    wananipenda
    They like me

SwedishEdit

EtymologyEdit

Since 1661, through contraction of the archaic 2nd plural verb suffix -(e)n and the older pronoun I ("ye"), e.g. vissten I > visste ni (“did you know”). Compare Icelandic þér and þið which developed similarly.

The Old Swedish ī, ir derives from Old Norse ír (East Norse variant of ér) from Proto-Germanic *jūz, from Proto-Indo-European *yū́. Compare Danish I.

PronunciationEdit

PronounEdit

ni

  1. you (plural nominative)
  2. you (second-person singular nominative formal) (capitalized Ni, rare in modern use)
    1. (obsolete) title used when addressing a person of lower social rank
      Ni kan börja med att städa kontoret, fröken Andersson.
      –Javisst, Herr Direktör.
      You can start with cleaning the office, miss Andersson.
      –Certainly, Mr. Director
    2. (colloquial, perceived formal, derogatory to some) by some considered a respectful alternative to du (you), especially when addressing customers or the elderly
      Vill ni ha en påse med köpet?
      Do you want a bag with your purchase?

Usage notesEdit

Both ni and er are second person plural forms, but can also be used as formal second person singular, as in the German Sie or French vous. It may sometimes also be capitalized (Ni, Er) The courteous "ni" was introduced in Swedish around the year 1900 as an alternative to the more complicated pattern of addressing others in the third person singular by their appropriate titles. This required knowledge of social status, occupation, educations, etc. with terms like fru (Mrs.) or fröken (Ms.), greve (count), kamrer (accountant), kandidat (bachelor's degree holder), etc. This was phased out gradually during the 1960s and 1970s in the so-called du-reformen, (“the you-reform”). In contemporary Swedish, du is universal and may be used to address anyone, regardless of differences in social status or age.

Ni is used occasionally by younger speakers to address customers, though this is often seen as being overly formal and too contrived, especially by older speakers. Formality and politeness in Swedish is not conveyed through specific grammatical forms, but primarily done through indirectness, manners of speaking or various other behaviors.
