Accusative Pronouns

Pronomen im Akkusativ

Introduction Einführung
The accusative personal pronouns are of the equivalent of words like “him” and “me” when used as direct objects or after accusative prepositions.

If you are unfamiliar with the four German grammatical cases we suggest you do the Accusative Articles lesson first. That lesson also contains a brief explanation of direct objects.

Like the nominative personal pronouns, the accusative pronouns also include a second-person plural pronouns, euch, which is similar to saying “you guys”, “you all” or “y’all” in English. The nominative version of this pronoun is ihr.

There is also a formal second-person pronoun, Sie, but it is the same as in the nominative case.
