Swedish personal pronouns : I

A personal pronoun is what we call the English words 'I', 'you', 'he', 'she', 'we' and 'they'. Just like English, Swedish has a set of personal pronouns. The Swedish word for 'I' is 'jag'. The word 'jag' is generally used as the subject of a verb ('I go', 'I see', 'I work' etc.). The Swedish word for 'me' is generally 'mig'. The word 'mig' is typically used with prepositions.
