Vowel Harmony in Pronouns
The single letter pronouns a/e, i/ị and o/ọ must harmonize with the verbs they precede. For example, 'ọ gwara m' means 'he told me'. The light pronoun 'ọ' is chosen to harmonize with the next vowel, which is the light vowel 'a' in 'gwara'. On the other hand, 'o kwere' means 'he agreed'. The single letter pronoun 'o' is in the heavy group and harmonizes with the heavy 'e' in 'kwere'.

Note: All Igbo pronouns are gender-neutral; no distinction between male and female.
