Subject and Object Pronouns, Definition and Example Sentences

What Are Subject Pronouns?

   Pronouns that execute the activity in a sentence are known as subject pronouns. I, you, he, she, we, they, and who are their names. A subject is any noun that performs the main action in the phrase, such as these pronouns, and is classified as a subjective case (nominative case). In English grammar, the subject must come before the verb in a sentence (except in questions).

  • I make cookies every Monday for my little lovely students.

    In this statement, “I” refers to the actor (subject pronoun) who is behaving as though he or she is making a decision (verb). You should be able to substitute I with any other subject pronoun, adjust the verb according to person and number, and have a coherent phrase to verify for the right case. It may seem needless in a basic declarative statement like this but checking the case in this way is a useful habit to develop when you’re examining more sophisticated sentences. Always keep in mind that subject nouns are the actors in sentences. If action is implied, subject nouns should be used.

 Example Sentences

  • I have got a motorbike.
  • You are not very tall.
  • My lovely sister is playing American flag football.
  • She is coming tomorrow night.
  • It is snowy and windy.
  • We went to the cinema.

Object Pronouns

Pronouns are noun words that can be used in place of the names of entities in a sentence and can fulfill all the functions that nouns do. Object pronouns are pronouns that replace the object noun in a sentence.

The pronouns mentioned are “I, me” for the first person singular, “you” for the second person singular, and “he, she, it, him, her” for the third person singular. “we” and “us” are used for the first person plural, “you” is used again for the second person plural, and “they” and “them” are used for the third person plural. If we need to show them through a table, we can use a table like the one below.

Object Pronouns Examples

Let’s understand the subject by giving a few more examples and learn about the different uses of object pronouns.

-Who wants to watch a movie?

-I am, please.

In the example sentence given above, object pronouns are preferred to subject pronouns. After the verb “be”, “object pronouns” is generally used.

Albert is less overweight than me.

You are much more beautiful than her.

Object pronouns are used after words like “than” and “as”. We wanted to show this in the two example sentences we gave above.

These gifts are not for me, they are for you.

Who is this woman? Why are you traveling with him?

We are going on vacation to Miami. Do you want to join us?
