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 (ot) него (nego) (ot negó, from him), на (na) нём (njóm) (na njom, on him), у (u) него (nego) (u negó, he has), к (k) нему (nemu) (k nemú, to him), с (s) ним (nim) (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 (im) became modern с (s) ним (nim), 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 (jego) (i.e., when его is a possessive pronoun), then н- is not prefixed: у (u) его (jego) брата (brata) (u jegó bráta, at his brother’s), о (o) его (jego) матери (materi) (o jegó máteri, about his mother), в (v) его (jego) комнате (komnate) (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 (u) самого (samogo) его (u samogó jegó, with him himself).
