Pronouns: subject pronouns

Subject pronouns Object pronouns
I me
you you
he him
she her
it it
we us
you you
they them

Subject pronouns refer to the subject in the sentence (the part of the sentence doing the action):

  • e.g. I can’t believe she still hasn’t called.

In many situations, we use subject pronouns to avoid repeating the noun or phrase:

  • e.g., Amanda mentioned the traffic was bad, so she might be late.

In contrast to subject pronouns, object pronouns receive the action.
