For your information, in bahasa Indonesia, we will know about some of subjective pronoun that is also known in English. Different with English, the subjective pronoun also could be the possessive and objective pronoun. There is no different among that part. It only a little bit change in the use of dia for possessive pronoun.


Subjective Pronoun

  • Saya        ( I )
  • Dia               (She/He)
  • Mereka          (They)
  • Anda/ Kamu (You)
  • Kalian   (All of you)
  • Kita/Kami        (We)


In English, you as subjective pronoun only has one meaning but in bahasa Indonesia, it has two meanings. Anda is used for the formal condition for example for the person you do not know before or for the colleague in office. Kamu is used for the people who are close to you or have the close relation to you such as your friends and your family. Kalian is for the plural people or more than one person, for example if you will give some instruction to your staffs, so you could use kalian. And the difference between kita and kami will make you understand although you did not find it in English. So kami is used when you told with your friend about an event that happened with you and your family, you will mention you and your family to your friend as kami. And it means that is exclude your friend. But kita is used for including you and your friend for example Let us go would be Ayo kita pergi. It means all people include kita.

So now, you know how to use subjective pronoun? We will talk about objective and possessive pronoun in the next article.
