Person: person

In Tatar, Person is a feature of personal pronouns, and verbs. Person marking on verbs are obligatory in Tatar for all finite verb forms. The Person marker on predicates agrees with the grammatical person of the subject.

We do not mark nouns for Person.

1: first person

In singular, the first person refers just to the speaker / author. In plural, it must include the speaker and one or more additional persons.

It is used for pronouns мин ‘I’ and без ‘we’ and their inflected forms, and verbs with a first person plural/singular agreement suffix.

Examples

2: second person

In singular, the second person refers to the addressee of the utterance / text. In plural, it may mean several addressees and optionally some third persons too.

It is used for pronouns син ‘you (Sing)’ and сез ‘you (Plur)’ and their inflected forms, and verbs with a second person plural/singular agreement suffix.

The second person singular agreement suffix is null for verbs in imperative form.

Examples

3: third person

The third person refers to one or more persons that are neither speakers nor addressees.

It is used for pronouns o ‘he/she/it’ and onlar ‘they’ and their inflected forms, and verbs with a second third plural/singular agreement suffix. The third person singular agreement suffix is null in most cases.
