Saying You in Irish

Did you notice that there are two ways of asking how are you? in Irish?

Conas atá tú?
KUN-is a-TAW too?
How are you (sg.)?
Conas atá sibh?
KUN-is a-TAW shiv?
How are you (pl.)?

This is because in Irish, there are two ways of saying you depending on whether you are talking to one or more people. The pronoun is singular while sibh is plural. Sibh can be translated into English in some contexts as you two, all of you, or you all.

The other personal pronouns are:


may
me

shee
she

shay
he
sinn/muid
shin/mwid
we
siad
sheed
they
