Advanced Description

This is is an experimental feature. Please report any issues.

In German, there are three different forms of the second person pronoun: du (singular informal), Sie (singular formal), and ihr (plural). The use of ihr indicates that the speaker is addressing more than one person. For example, 'Ihr seid meine Freunde' means 'You all are my friends'.

It's important to note that ihr can also be used as a possessive pronoun meaning 'her' or 'their'. In this case, it agrees in gender and number with the noun it modifies. For example, 'Ihr Hund' means 'Her/Their dog'.

Additionally, in some regions of Germany, ihr can also be used as a singular informal pronoun instead of du. This usage is considered dialectical and should be avoided in formal settings.
