How to use Subject Pronouns and Object Pronouns

Average: 3.3 (163 votes)

Choosing between a subject pronoun and an object pronoun can be tricky in a number of situations.  First, let's look at a list of pronouns.

Subject Pronouns

Singular Plural
I we
you you
he/she/it they

Object Pronouns

Singular Plural
me us
you you
him/her/it them

Tips

1 - When there are multiple subjects or objects, reduce the sentence to only the pronoun.
Example:" Steve, Bill, and (I, me) went to the park."
If we remove Steve and Bill, the sentence would be: (I, me) went to the park.
"I went to the park" sounds a lot better than "Me went to the park."
Answer: "Steve, Bill, and I went to the park."

2 - If you are not sure, turn the sentence around.
Example: "The best player on the team is (he, him)."
Try this: (He, Him) is the best player on the team.
Answer: "He is the best player on the team."

3 - Use an object pronoun after a preposition.
Example: "The money will be divided between you and (I, me)."
After the preposition "between" we need an object pronoun.
Answer: "The money will be divided between you and me."

Now it's your turn!
