Unit 10.1

Object Pronouns



Pronouns are words used to avoid repetitions of a noun.

Object pronouns are pronouns which are used as an object that follows a verb or a preposition or as replacement for objects to avoid repetitions.


Pronouns and object pronouns have their number (singular, plural) and gender (masculine, feminine, neutral). Object pronouns are placed after verbs and prepositions.

Object pronouns are:

Subject Pronouns Object Pronouns
I Me
You You
He Him
She Her
It It
We Us
You You
They Them

In informal conversations, they can be used as short answers.


  1. Avoiding repetitions
    • I’m a very calm person but getting stuck in traffic drives me mad.
    • My daughter is 7 years old. I take her to school every day.
    • They have 3 children. They take them to the park every weekend.
  2. After prepositions
    • Don’t look at me!
    • This ticket is for you.
    • I talk to them every day.


We use an object pronoun:

  1. To avoid repeating the same subject pronoun or noun;
  2. In sentences after prepositions.


Object pronouns are used to express what is affected by the subject, but they can also be used to avoid repetitions. They differ in gender and number, and are placed after verbs and prepositions.

They are: me, you, him, her, it, us, you and them.

For example:
— “My dogs get very happy when I take them to the park.”  = Them refers to my dogs.
— “I gave him a kiss for you.” = Him is used instead of the person’s name.

Let’s revise this content within the {Form} section. Take a look at the {Example} section that shows its use within a context.
