Pronouns

Pronouns are words used to avoid repetitions of a noun.

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

We distinguish Pronouns depending on number (singular, plural) and gender (masculine, feminine, neutral).

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).
