Pronunciation[edit]

Pronoun[edit]

он (on) (feminine она́, neuter оно́)

  1. third-person masculine singular pronoun: he, it.

Declension[edit]

Usage notes[edit]

  • Whenever a preposition stands immediately before any of the oblique cases of the third-person pronoun (singular or plural) and directly governs it, then an н- must be prefixed to the pronoun: от него (ot negó, from him), на нём (na njom, on him), у него (u negó, he has), к нему (k nemú, to him), с ним (s nim, with him).
  • The explanation for the н-prothesis is that, originally, some Russian prepositions ended in the letter -н: сън (sŭn, “with”...cf. Greek σύν, Latin cum). Eventually, the final н of these prepositions migrated across to the pronoun, so that сън им became modern с ним, and then this was extended to include all prepositions when governing any third-person pronoun.
  • Note that if the preposition does not directly govern его (i.e., when его is a possessive pronoun), then н- is not prefixed: у его брата (u jegó bráta, at his brother’s), о его матери (o jegó máteri, about his mother), в его комнате (v jegó kómnate, in his room).
  • When there is another word separating a preposition and any oblique case of он, the н- is not added: у самого его (u samogó jegó, with him himself).
