Personal Pronouns

Average: 3.6 (90 votes)

A pronoun is a word or form that we can use instead of a noun or noun phrase.

Personal pronouns are used to represent the number of people (I/we), gender (he/she), person (I/you) and case (we/us).

There are two types of personal pronouns: subject and object.

Subject pronouns

Pronouns that are the subject of the sentence are called subject pronouns. These are

I - I love learning English!
You - You are my best student.
She - She has a nice voice.
He - He forgot his textbook.
It - It was on the table.
We - We have to leave soon.
They - They all cleaned up together.

Object pronouns

Object pronouns are used when the person or thing is the object of the sentence or clause.

Me - Can they hear me?
You - I will wait for you.
Her - What's wrong with her?
Him - Mary said she wants to marry him.
It - Who broke it?
Us - She will email us tomorrow.
You - Is anyone sitting next to you?
Them - I will take them.
