Suffix Pronouns

Personal suffix pronouns must follow, and be suffixed to, some preceding word. They could not stand by themselves as a separate words.

General use of suffix pronouns:

- as genitive after nouns (with the sense of our possessive adjectives - "his wife", "their brother")
- after prepositions ("to you", "with them")
- as nominative with the simple tenses of the verb ("I say", "they lived")
