    • Kinds of Pronoun - Personal Pronoun

      Personal pronouns are used for particular nouns such as the names of people, places or things. Personal pronouns are usually used when we have already mentioned the name of the same noun to avoid the repetition and to bring flow in the sentence.

      For example:

             ·         Dia bought a new bag yesterday. She absolutely loves it.

      In the second sentence, there are two personal pronouns. The personal pronoun "She" is used in the place of "Dia" and "it" is used in the place of "bag."


      Rules of personal pronoun

      Number - singular or plural

      PersonFirst person (This includes the speaker himself or a group that includes the speaker, i.e., I, me, we, and us.)

      Second person - (This includes the speaker's audience, i.e., you.)

      Third person (This includes everybody else, i.e., he, she, it, they.)

      Gender - male, female, or neuter

      Case - subject or an object

      Subject Pronouns are the personal pronouns (I, you, he, she, it, they, and we) that are used in the place of nouns as the subject of a sentence. Example: Ms. Dia did not come to office. She had to go to the dentist. Here, "Ms. Dia" is the subject and "she" is the subject pronoun.

      Object pronouns are the personal pronouns (me, you, him, her, it, us, and them) that take the place of the object in the sentence (i.e. the noun that receives the action in a sentence). Example: Dia went market with her friend. "Her" is the object pronoun used here.

      Possessive Pronouns: mine, yours, his, hers, theirs, ours, its, whose
