Personal Pronouns ( Subjects and Objects )

By | October 5, 2020

Personal pronouns :

Used instead of a name of a person, place, object, or idea when it is clear what or who you are talking about.

Pronuns save us a lot of repetition.

Examples :

Bob, Tubai and I decided that we would watch the flamingos from our terrace

Bob stayed back as the watchman did not see him

When the watchman saw Tubai and me on the terrace, he asked us to come down

The Flamingos are the beautiful birds; It’s a pleasure to watch them
