Pronouns and Determiners > Personal Pronouns


Personal pronouns stand in for people, places, things and ideas. There are subjective, objective and possessive personal pronouns:

Subjective pronouns - I, You, She, He, They, We, It, Who

Objective pronouns - Me, You, Him, Her, Them, Us, It, Whom

Possessive pronouns - Mine, Yours, His, Hers, Theirs, Ours, Its, Whose

A subjective personal pronoun acts as the subject of the sentence:

  • We will meet at the cinema at 7:30 p.m.


  • When she was younger, she played volleyball.


  • I am glad to see you again.


An objective personal pronoun indicates that the pronoun is acting as an object:

  • After reading the book, Andy lent it to his friend.


  • They will meet us at the cinema tonight.


  • Give it to me, please.


A possessive pronoun indicates that the pronoun is acting as a marker of possession and defines who owns a particular object or person:

  • Can Tim bring his puppy to school?


  • This is mine.


  • Ours is the blue one in front of the house.
