Usage notes[edit]

This pronoun can only be used of animals and inanimate objects. Like mj it is an enclitic, which must directly follow the word it modifies. Its meaning depends on its context.

  • When it follows a verb, it indicates the object of the verb
  • In the second and third person when it follows an adjective, it forms the subject of an adjectival sentance
  • When it follows a relative adjective, such as ntj, ntt, and jsṯ, it indicates the subject of the relative clause (Usually only in the first person singular and third person neuter)
  • When it follows an imperative, it indicates the object of the verb.
  • When it follows a particle like mj.k, it indicates the subject of the clause.
  • When attached to a preposition, it indicates the object of the preposition
