Personal pronouns

Average: 4 (9 votes)

Pronouns are used to replace a noun. These are the personal pronouns:

Personal pronouns as the subject: I, he, she, it, we, you, they
Personal pronouns as the object or after a preposition: me, him, her, it, us, you, them

Use an object pronoun after a preposition:
Between you and me, I don't like the new manager.
This present is from John and me.

Put 'I' last:
My friends and I– NOT I and my friends.

Always remember to make sure that the pronoun you use agrees with the word it replaces:
No Jane isn't my sister, SHE is my cousin.
