In conjugation lists; particularly for foreign languages, you'd often see the pronouns with the conjugated verb form next to it. Now since Japanese needs no conjugation :iconyaayplz:; I will only list the pronouns you need to know. A quickie :p

:iconmh3plz: Japanese pronouns  :iconmh1plz:

わたしー I
あなたー You
かれー He
かのじょー She
じぶんー They
わたしたち・われわれー We
あなたがたー You all

:iconnaturedivider3plz: Nonliving things pronouns :iconnaturedivider3plz:
これー It here
それー It there
あれー It far away

:icondividerplz: Living things pronouns below-: :icondividerplz:
このー It here
そのーIt there
あれー It far away


Normalerweise diese Lektion sind trennbar, aber diesmal ich hatte kein Sinn gesehen :shrug:

:iconmh3plz: Japanisch pronomen  :iconmh1plz:
わたしー Ich
あなたー Du/Sie
かれー Er
かのじょー sie (sie ist wunderschön, dieser 'sie')
じぶんー Sie (Sie sind meine Freunde; dieser 'Sie')
わたしたち/われわれー Wir
あなたがたー Ihr

:iconnaturedivider3plz: Nicht Lebewessen pronomen :iconnaturedivider3plz:
これー Es hier
それー Es dort
あれー Es, weg

:icondividerplz: Lebewessen pronomen darunter-: :icondividerplz:
このー Es hier
そのー Es dort
あのー Es, weg

Hopefully this clears everything/ Ich hoffe das ist verständlich.
After a perfectly voluntary hiatus, aka not writer's block; I decided to help you again. Firstly, Happy Diwali to all your guys even if you don't celebrate it! :iconawwplz: :iconfireworkplz::iconfireworkplz::iconfireworkplz:

Now, after that happy little breather, we're going to learn the next most important particle ever in this materialistic society of ours.... the particle 'の'; pronounced 'no'. :clap: :bow:

Contrary to your initial opinion,の does NOT mean a negation of something. :no: The word for 'no' as in the opposite of yes in Japanese is いいえ. Since の is a particle, it obviously denotes something important. :nod:

Particle の is an indication of possession; which if confused- I will tell you what it is-:

My book :iconbookplz:
Teruko's dress :icondressplz:
Kazuo's heart :heart:
The petals of a sunflower :iconsunflowerplz:

:#1: In all these examples, these things BELONG to someone. You/the person POSSESSES them; thereby they are called possessives; word which indicate who/what a thing belongs to. :#1:

Thereby, の means the same thing. :)

Now it is different in Japanese from other languages. How? I'll explain.

Take this sentence in English-: Mia is my dog. :iconlabradorplz:

German- Mia ist meine Hündin.
French- Mia est ma chienne.
Hindi- मीया मेरी कुत्ती है. (Miya meri kutti hai)
Japanese- みやはわたしのいぬです。

See the difference? :idea: In Japanese (and actually even in Hindi for 3rd person), it is always written as ' the thing of X' instead of 'X's thing. :D So, sentence structure is as follows-:


Now, see these sentences-:
これはあなたのれいぞうこです。 :iconfridgeplz:
(This is your fridge.)

それはわたしのははのふです。 :iconbrushplz:
(that is my mom's paintbrush.... yes they had no decent emoticon, hence :shrug:)

あれは埼玉のみちです。 :iconroadplz:
(This is the road of Saitama... doesn't exist :nyah:)

Okay, for a full understanding of how this works; you will need to know the pronouns for living things too.... Stay tuned! :o
Japanese Particle 'no'
Read this for a brief understanding, and later I will explain how to use it properly will other pronouns.
I'm sure you'd have come across these names in some point of your life, especially if you watch TV :popcorn: Now; some of these are pretty common, or.. when the real meaning comes out... pretty dumb/ unsurprising :no :facepalm: So, if yo want to know, go ahead! :aww:


Pps, I find the words 'varning' (Swedish for warning) creepy. Do not ask :fear:

Names & Surnames- :clap: :bow:


1 -kar. This is actually a suffix. For those curious; there are many surnames that end like this- Dabholkar, Tendulkar, etc. 'kar' means of. Eg-: If I were from this place called 'x' (an example) My surname could be 'xkar'. Found in Maharashtra, and I personally love those surnames :aww:

1- Bauer- Most common surname  ever! It means farmer, and still holds this meaning. Meaning the protagonist of 24 has agricultural roots.. no I was not punning, or even trying :blush:
2- Donner- Think of anyone you know with such a surname. Louis Donner :fear: Lauren Shuler Donner (X-Men producer; oh and btw- schuler= school student). Means 'thunder' and is one of the coolest names ever :love:! Also the name of a reindeer of Santa's sleigh... and paired with Blitzen (blitz= lightning)
3- -berg- Mostly found at the end of surnames. This means mountain. Think of all the surnames you could remember with this suffix-:
Steinberg- Stone mountain
Eisenberg- Iron Mountain (pretty badass if you ask me :8-):
Heidelberg- Huckleberry mountain YUMMMM!!!!! :drool: :dead:
Zuckerberg.... Sugar mountain?!  :o (zucker= sugar) CURSE YOU! The more we know..... :no:
4- Berger- Based on the third explanation, a 'berger' is a mountain dweller. NOT a food! Roll Eyes
5- -Mann- Also super common, the suffix 'mann' means 'Man'. Mann in German means man, and is a pretty hot word Wink/Razz . So, think of some names....
Kuhlmann- 'Cool' Man
Bachmann- Brook Man
Lehmann- I'm guessing teacher, because Lehrer= teacher. I don't really know, sorry I am a dummy!
Liedermann- Singer/ musician (only logical; lied= song Yawn )
Wassermann- Water Man.... oh wait.... this is German for Aquarius! Nana, look what I have and you dont! 

These surnames are still pretty popular; of sorts. How?
Coleman- once Kuhlmann
Bachman- once Bachmann
Lehman- once Lehmann

Get the drift? :p

6- Stein- Also so used.....!!! It names 'stone'. It is also used as a single surname... and 'Steyn' is derived from here; so is the surname 'Stone'. :aww: Think of these surnames-:
Edelstein- Noble Stone
Epstein- Beatles' manager's surname. No seriously, I don't know what it means. Boing! Boing! (I think here it is pronounced 'steen', not 'stine')
Einstein- One stone. Yes, you read right. ONE STONE!!! Oh Noes!

7- Majority of the surnames ending in '-er'.- Does not apply for all, but the Germanic ones usually mean 'doer'.;
Bauer- Farmer
Berger- Mountain Dweller
Lieber- literally means preferably, but also means 'lover' in this case (Stan Lee's real name was Stanley Lieber... food for thought)Greetings 
Bürger- Citizen (Not much of a surname, but do NOT confuse it with 'burger'.)
Kleiner- small/smaller (yes, this is a surname) ^^; SO Calvin Klein..... :lol: :giggle: :evillaugh:

8- Schmidt- I'm guessing the whole western world has an equivalent for this.Woohooooo!  Schmidt= 'smith' like blacksmith, goldsmith, etc.
9-  Schumacher- Aww come on, do I even have to explain?! Means cobbler; more specifically 'shoemaker' and still used today Singing (Schuhmacher- shoemaker; schuh= shoe (I am a dummy! ) macher= maker)
10- 'Von'....- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe was conferred the title 'von' as a German knighthood, but 'von' actually means from. So Ludwig von Drake's name means Ludwig from Drake. Weird Disbelief

Stupid ones-;
Montag- means Monday. SO yes; I dislike Heidi Montag for her stupid surname. Sounds pretty, but makes little sense :facepalm:

I'm probably still missing many.... but till later :p

Yamashita (山下)- Foot of the mountain dwellers (yama- mountain; shita- under, below, down)
Yamanaka (山中)- Dwellers in the mountain (naka= inside)
Yamano (山の)- Dwellers of he mountain (no= particle indicating possession)
Any surname ending in 'kawa' or ''gawa'- Someplace with a river (川ーriver)
Any surname ending with 'moto'- Source/ original (本ーsource)
Hayashi- (林)- Forest
An surname ending with 'no'- Of something. Used same way as 'von'
Any surname ending with 'mura'- village in someplace; eg-: Nakamura= inside the village; Sawamura- village of the valley. (村ーvillage)

Sango- Coral
