personal pronouns in Punjabi

Punjabi is written not in one but in three alphabets-Urdu,Hindi and Gurmukhi.Here I've used the Gurmukhi script.
Gurmukhi script Transliteration English
ਮੈਂ maiṃ I
ਅਸੀਂ asīṃ we
ਤੂੰ tūṃ you (sg)
ਤੁਸੀਂ tusīṃ you (pl)
ਉਹ uh this, he,she,it
ਇਹ ih that, he,she,it

These pronouns change form according to the case used.

 First person forms. sg ਮੇਰਾ mērā, ਮੇਰੇ mērē, ਮੇਰੀ mērī, ਮੇਰੀਆਂ mērīāṃ pl ਸਾਡਾ sāḍā, ਸਾਡੇ sāḍē, ਸਾਡੀ sāḍī, ਸਾਡੀਆਂ sāḍīāṃ;  

Second person forms sg/pl ਤੇਰਾ tērā, ਤੇਰੇ tērē, ਤੇਰੀ tērī, ਤੇਰੀਆਂ tērīāṃ, ਤੁਹਾਡਾ tuhāḍā, ਤੁਹਾਡੇ tuhāḍē, ਤੁਹਾਡੀ tuhāḍī, ਤੁਹਾਡੀਆਂ tuhāḍīāṃ

 third person forms ਉਹਦਾ uhdā, ਉਹਦੇ uhdē, ਉਹਦੀ uhdī, ਉਹਦੀਆਂ uhdīāṃ, ਇਹਦਾ ihdā, ਇਹਦੇ ihdē, ਇਹਦੀ ihdī, ਇਹਦੀਆਂ ihdīāṃ

What is a Hieroglyph?

A Hieroglyph is literally a 'sacred carving'- a character usually an image carved in stone.From Greek hiero-sacred- and glyph-to carve,to sculpt.
Ra-the Sun-God in Egyptian Hieroglyphics
The Greeks called the Ancient Egyptian writting Hieroglyphics because it was used by priests and was originally carved in stone and ocassionaly in wood.

Cursive forms of the script existed written on papyrus and wood. Each Egyptian Hieroglyph represented- to make things simple- either a syllable or a whole word.Some of the glyphs had alphabetic values-marked one single letter.

These are known as the Hieroglyphic alphabet. Technically Hieroglyphics can be the sacred writting of any civilization such the Babylonian cuniform script or the Mayan glyphs.

Cleopatra in Hieroglyphics

Cleopatra in Egyptian hieroglyphs was written as qljwp3drt3 -all consonants- hence Cleopatra.

only consonants
Ancient Egyptians used mainly consonants to write much like in Semitic languages.

The j,w,3 signs in the name are in fact consonants which we assume that were followed by i,o,a vowels accordingly.We cannot be sure about which vowels followed in the spoken language.So,we simply write i,o,a for ease of reading.

For example,the vulture sign is actually the '3' consonant followed by A.We just write it as A.

Vulture sign
'A' in Hieroglyphics

the egg determinative
At end it is used the egg determitative which means son,humanity and it is a common determitative for the name of goddesses.For example it was commonly used to write the name for Egyptian goddess Isis.
Garder listed it as H8.
the egg determinative sign

Being a determinative the egg is not read here.The word for egg in Egyptian was swht.

Cleopatra used this determitative for her name,too.


Of course there are other ways to write the name Cleopatra in hieroglyphics.Here is another one.

Ancient polyglots-Cleopatra

Did you know that the Egyptian Queen Cleopatra was a polyglot?

Queen Cleopatra VII Philopator-Pharaoh of Ancient Egypt
Reign 51–30 BC
languages- Greek,Egyptian,Kushitic (Ethiopian),Arabian,Aramaic,Troglodyte,Parthian.It is said that she had difficulty speaking Latin,though.

According to Plutarch Egyptian queen Cleopatra had a flair for languages and she was a polyglot.She spoke many languages along with Greek-her mother tongue.

She even spoke the language of the Troglodytes (οἱ τρωγλοδύται) -the cave dwellers,literally the cave 'divers' in Ancient Greek.

Herodot wrote that their language was unique and sounded like no other:
τετρίγασι κατά περ αἱ νυκτερίδες 
They spoke like bats!
Plutarch praises her sweet voice and the easines with which she could switch from one language to another.It is mentioned that she rarely used an interpreter.

Plutarch on Cleopatra being a polyglot:
It was a pleasure merely to hear the sound of her voice, with which, 
like an instrument of many strings, she could pass from one language 
to another; so that there were few of the barbarian nations that she
answered by an interpreter; to most of them she spoke herself, as
to the Ethiopians, Troglodytes, Hebrews, Arabians, Assyrians, Medes,
Parthians, and many others, whose language she had learnt; which
was all the more surprising because most of the kings, her 
predecessors, scarcely gave themselves the trouble to acquire the Egyptian tongue, and several of them quite abandoned the Macedonian.

Nevertheless,most of the languages that Cleopatra spoke were related to each other-they were Afroasiatic with the exception of Parthian and Greek of course.

Still speaking many languages- even related ones-with ease is no easy feat.

Σχεδόν όλοι οι τουρίστες,όταν βρεθούν στη Βαρκελώνη,το πρώτο μέρος που επισκέπτονται είναι ο δρόμος Λας Ράμπλας ή λα Ράμπλα ή λε Ράμπλε ,αναλόγως πώς προτιμάται να το πείτε,στα ισπανικά (καστεγιάνο) ή τα καταλανικά (καταλά)

Το μέρος σφίζει από τουρίστες με διάφορα 'αξιοθέατα' ,όπως ζωντανά αγάλματα!
Αστυνομικοί συνομιλούν με το 'άγαλμα' Ρωμαίου αυτοκράτορα.

Στο τέλος της πλατείας προς το λιμάνι είναι το άγαλμα του Κολόμβου που δείχνει προς τη θάλασσα.

Υπάρχουν πολλές διαφωνίες σχετικά με το πού δείχνει.Ο καλλιτέχνης το κατασκεύασε με το σκεπτικό ότι δείχνει στο Νέο Κόσμο,όμως το τοποθέτησαν στραμμένο προς τη Μεσόγειο,προς τη θάλασσα,απ'όπου ξεκίνησε το ταξίδι του.
