Usage

In isiZulu, the concept her is typically formed by combining any of the singular possessive concords (PCs) with a possessive stem (Pstem) from classes 1, 5, 7 or 9. See Table 7 in the mini-grammar, as well as the section on possessive pronouns there. In verbs, it can also appear as an object concord (OC). See Tables 4 and 5 in the mini-grammar.
