What is a personal pronoun?
First of all, an English personal pronoun is meant for a person, animal or thing and is used as a substitute to a noun, so to speak. This is done for the reason that you probably want to avoid repeating a noun in a text more often. Thus, such a personal pronoun can be used both as a subject and as an object. Consequently, there is a subject form and an object form.
Use and Formation of Personal Pronoun
Basically, there is no proper formation because there are only the few forms that you can incorporate into your sentences. Thus, it is not very difficult to use the English personal pronoun and at the same time your texts will get a better style.
The subject forms:
|3. Person||he, she, it|
The object forms:
|3. Person||him, her, it|
Exceptions when using the English personal pronoun:
As it’s often the case in English, there are few exceptions to the use of the English pronouns.
- In a short sentence where there is no verb, the object form is always used.
- Furthermore, the object form is always used in a comparison.
- Last but not least, the object form is used for questions instead of the subject form.
Hey, formerly I thought that learning languages was an innate one. Either you can speak English perfectly or not and no matter how much you learn – “I do not write a good grade in English anyway.” But I quickly learned that you do not know everything in your mother tongue.
After a while, I gave myself one last chance to learn English. Only this time I limited myself to the essential points.
That means for me verbs: the form – examples – signal words & the usage
This method enabled me to learn English faster than ever before.
Since then I know that learning to talk is not innate. And through that realization, my vision has become to offer other students the opportunity to learn English, just like I did back then. Now I ask you to help me by sharing this article with your friends! Thanks a lot!
