What are Phrasal Verbs?
- Pronouns replace nouns in sentences to avoid repetition.
- Subject pronouns (I, you, he, she, it, we, you, they) are used as the subject of a sentence.
- Object pronouns (me, you, him, her, it, us, you, them) are used as the object of a sentence.
In English, we use pronouns to avoid repeating the same nouns. If we constantly repeated a person's name or a specific thing, the sentence would be tedious and confusing. There are many kinds of pronouns, but let's focus on two basic types: subject pronouns and object pronouns.
Subject pronouns are used as the subject of a sentence. The subject is the person or thing doing the action. Here are the subject pronouns: I, you, he, she, it, we, you, they.
I love pizza.
Here, 'I' is the subject pronoun.
They play soccer every weekend.
In this case, 'They' is the subject pronoun performing the action.
Object pronouns, on the other hand, are used as the object of a sentence. The object is the person or thing receiving the action. The object pronouns are: me, you, him, her, it, us, you, them.
She likes him.
In this sentence, 'him' is the object pronoun receiving the action.
You are helping us.
Here, 'us' is the object pronoun.
Once you've mastered these basic pronouns, you've taken a big step forward in improving your English! Keep practicing and soon you'll get the hang of it.
