Lesson 21
object pronouns

Object Pronouns

Object pronouns receive the action of a verb. Not all sentences have an object pronoun. It’s important to know the differences between subject pronouns and object pronouns. 

In this video, I provide examples of object pronouns and their relationship to subject pronouns.

It’s important to know that “you” is used as both a subject and an object pronoun.

Note: It is helpful to know that English teachers often talk about object pronouns this way: 

  • The pronoun “me” is in the first-person singular. 
  • The pronoun “you” is in the second-person singular. 
  • The pronouns “him,” “her,” and “it” are in the third-person singular. 
  • The pronoun “us” is in the first-person plural.  (me + you = us)
  • The pronoun “you” is in the second-person plural. (you + you = you) 
  • The pronoun “them” is in the third-person plural. (him/her/it ++ = them) 

In Lesson Twenty-two, you can learn about coordinating conjunctions.
