What are Spanish prepositional pronouns?
Learn how to use Spanish Prepositional Pronouns. A pronoun is a word that is used instead of the name of a person or thing.
Subject – Obj. Prep. Pronouns
Yo (I) – mí
Tú (You)(Informal) – ti
Él/Ella(He/She) – él ,ella
Usted (You)(Formal) – usted
Nosotros(as)(We) – nosotros/as
Vosotros(as)(You)(Informal) – vosotros/as
Ellos(as)(They) – ellos/as
Note: Only “mí” and “ti” are different from the subject pronouns. Use this second set of pronouns to replace the noun that comes immediately after a preposition.
La profesora habla de mí. – My teacher talks about me.
Note: Whenever “mí” follows the preposition “con”, the two words combine to form “conmigo”.
Note: Whenever “ti” follows the preposition “con”, the two words combine to form “contigo”.
1- Whenever you want to say “with him, with her, with you (formal), with them, with you-all (formal)” there are two possibilities. If the pronoun is referring to the subject of the sentence, use “consigo”.
Ella llevó los libros consigo – She took the bookswith her(self).
2- If the pronoun does not refer to the subject of the sentence, use “con + the appropriate pronoun”.
There are six special prepositions that are followed by subject pronouns rather than object pronouns.
Esto queda entre tú y yo. – This is between me and you
Todos vamos a la fiesta, incluso yo. – We all go to the party, even me
Según tú, ellos ya lo saben. – According to you, they already know
