Subject Pronouns

The situation is considerably more perplexing in English because many cases have vanished. There are seven examples in modern Ukrainian. There are fifteen examples in Finnish. Even German, which belongs to the same linguistic family as English, has four. There are three in English, which is about as straightforward as it gets linguistically. Because most native speakers are expected to have an intuitive “feel” for the right case usage, English cases are rarely taught nowadays.

Many people, however, continue to make mistakes, and the lack of educational reinforcement just adds to the uncertainty. The focus of this article will be on two cases: subject (nominative) and object, with a special emphasis on first-person pronouns. Read on if you’ve ever been puzzled about the terms “I versus. me,” “he vs. him,” “she vs. her,” “we vs. us,” or “they vs. them.”

The first thing to realize is that “Me” and “I” are not the same people. They are not interchangeable. They can’t be used interchangeably. Why? They are two distinct situations.


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.
