In Lebanese, the mention of a personal pronoun could imply the verb to be, unless it is followed by another verb explicitly or implicitly.

Note: The symbol (fs) stands for feminine singular, (ms) for masculine singular and (p) for plural whether for feminine, masculine or both. The gender refers to the gender of the person or object the pronoun represents. In Lebanese, most common words have an associated gender even when they designate neutral objects.
