Talk:ihr

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

"The genitive case euer is almost never used in modern German, even in very high registers." Wow, whoever that wrote doesn't seem to speak often with native German speakers. 178.190.15.75 18:15, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

euer is used as possessive pronoun, not as genitive of the personal pronoun. As such, it is almost entirely limited to genitive objects like ich gedenke euer. -- Gauss (talk) 20:48, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

Etymology[edit]

It is not cognate with English her, am I right ? --Fsojic (talk) 20:25, 7 October 2012 (UTC)

That’s right, it is not. It’s cognate with you. —Stephen (Talk) 21:31, 7 October 2012 (UTC)
And (dialectal or archaic) English ye. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 23:42, 7 October 2012 (UTC)
Well, there are three ihrs: the 2nd person plural nominative pronoun, the 3rd person plural possessive determiner, and the 3rd person singular feminine dative pronoun. The first two not cognate with her, but the last one is. —Angr 20:10, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
