Pronoun

ta (?, ?, ?, ?)

  1. (archaic, now literary) I; me
  2. we; us

Usage notes

  • It is a good idea to use ta to translate the English "generic you (anyone)". Also compare French on ("we/us; one; you").
  • ta ("I; me") is now only used especially in literary or translation works, to convey hostility between the characters, as alternatives (such as tao) may sound awkward or too rough, especially if the age difference between characters is significant (one translation, such as that of Beyblade, may use tao for conversations between children of about the same age, but ta if there is such a difference). It is used in conjunction with mi (informal) or ngi (formal) for "you".
