Scottish Gaelic personal pronouns

We will now look at all the personal pronouns. If someone asks you to use a different pronoun from what you expect, just like in any language, respect their choices. 

Gaelic also has an emphatic case. This is really helpful; it means you don’t have to shout to emphasise contrast or emphasise a point! We will also give you this.
