Pronunciation[edit]

Pronoun[edit]

אֲנַחְנוּ (anákhnu) m, f

  1. We; the subject form of the first-person plural personal pronoun.
    ונהיה אנחנו וצאצאינו וצאצאי עמך בית ישראל כלנו יודעי שמך ולומדי תורתך לשמה
    (please add an English translation of this usage example)

Usage notes[edit]

  • This term does not change form to reflect gender; any adjective or present-tense verb will agree with the implicit gender of its referents (masculine for a group of men or for a mixed group of men and women, feminine for a group of women).
  • In formal, archaic, and poetic speech and writing, the synonymous form אנו (ánu, we) is often found instead.
  • This word is somewhat less common than its English counterpart, since in Hebrew the subject pronouns are typically omitted in the past and future tenses.
