Etymology

From Middle High German ich, from Old High German ih, from Proto-Germanic *ek, *ik, from Proto-Indo-European *éǵh₂.

Pronunciation

  • IPA(key): /ɪç/
  • (Austria)
  • Rhymes: -ɪç

Pronoun

ich

  1. I (first person singular nominative (subject) pronoun)

Declension

In contemporary German, the genitive forms of personal pronouns are restricted to formal style and are infrequent even there. They may be used

  • for the genitive object still found in a handful of verbs: Er erbarmte sich meiner. – "He had mercy on me". (Colloquially one would either use the dative case, or a prepositional object, or replace the verb with another.)
  • after the preposition statt ("instead of, in place of"): Er kam statt meiner in die Mannschaft. – "He joined the team in my place." This sounds antiquated, and an meiner Statt or an meiner Stelle is preferable (in which case meiner is not a genitive, but a form of the possessive determiner mein).
