Pronouns

Pronouns are words used to avoid repetitions of a noun. We distinguish them depending on number (singular, plural) and gender (masculine, feminine, neutral).

Object Pronouns are used as replacement for objects to avoid repetitions.

Below you can see the Object Pronouns:

SUBJECT PRONOUN OBJECT PRONOUN No. GENDER
I Me sing.
You You sing.
He Him sing. masculine
She Her sing. feminine
It It sing. neutral*
We Us plur.
You You plur.
They Them plur.

* (object/animal)

  1. Avoid repetitions
    • I’m a very calm person but my brother always drives me mad.
    • My daughter is 7 years old.  Every day I take her to school.
    • They have 3 children.  They take them to the park every weekend.
  2. Object of the verb
    • I like her, but she doesn’t like me.
    • She meets with him every summer.
    • They asked them to come earlier.
  3. After prepositions
    • Don’t look at me!
    • This is for you.
    • I talk to them every day.

We use an Object Pronoun:

  1. When it is not necessary to repeat a specific name again;
  2. To replace the object of the verb;
  3. In sentences after prepositions.

Object Pronouns are pronouns which are used to avoid repetitions as the object of a verb and after prepositions.

For example:
— “I have three dogs. They are very happy when I take them to the park.” = To avoid repetitions (They = subject pronoun; Them = object pronoun).
— “I gave him a kiss for you.= After prepositions (I = subject pronoun; Him = object pronoun).

NOTE: As with subject pronouns, we distinguish object pronouns by number (singular or plural) and gender (masculine, feminine or neutral).
