When learning English, it's important to know the difference between subject pronouns and object pronouns.
What is a Pronoun?
A pronoun is a word that takes the place of a noun. Pronouns can be a subject pronoun or an object pronoun.
A subject pronoun can be: I, you, he, she , it, we, they.
What are Object Pronouns?
Object pronouns are the object of a sentence. They can be me, you, him, her, it, us, and them. An object pronoun receives the action.
For example, in "I love _______", ________ is the object. We have to say, "I love him" or "I love her", NOT "I love he" or "I love she".
WRONG: My mother loves I.
My mother loves me.
Subject ("My mother") - verb ("loves") - object (object pronoun, "me")
WRONG: He talks to she.
He talks to her.
Subject ("He") - verb ("talks") - preposition ("to") - object (object pronoun, "her")
She plants a flower.
"She" is a subject pronoun.
The flower plants her.
"her" is an object pronoun.
