What Are Subject Pronouns?

Pronouns take the place of a noun in a sentence. There are three main types of pronouns: subject, object, and possessive. A subject pronoun is used when the subject of the sentence is a pronoun. For example, “I” is a subject pronoun because it is the subject of the sentence “I am going to the store.” The common subject pronouns are I, he, you, she, it, we, they, and who.

What Are Object Pronouns?

Object pronouns refer to someone or something as objects of verbs or prepositions. The three most common object pronouns are “me,” “you,” and “him.” For example, if we say, “I saw him at the store,” the word “him” is an object pronoun because it refers to the person who is the object of the verb “saw.” Other examples of object pronouns include “her,” “it,” “whom,” and “them.”
