    Personal Pronouns

    Personal pronouns represent specific people or things. We use them depending on:

    * number: singular (eg: I) or plural (eg: we)
    * person: 1st person (eg: I), 2nd person (eg: you) or 3rd person (eg: he)
    * gender: male (eg: he), female (eg: she) or neuter (eg: it)
    * case: subject (eg: we) or object (eg: us)

    We use personal pronouns in place of the person or people that we are talking about. My name is Josef but when I am talking about myself I almost always use "I" or "me", not "Josef". When I am talking direct to you, I almost always use "you", not your name. When I am talking about another person, say John, I may start with "John" but then use "he" or "him". And so on.

    Here are the personal pronouns, followed by some example sentences:



    Examples (in each case, the first example shows a subject pronoun, the second an object pronoun):

    * I like coffee.
    * John helped me.

    * Do you like coffee?
    * John loves you.

    * He runs fast.
    * Did Ram beat him?

    * She is clever.
    * Does Mary know her?

    * It doesn't work.
    * Can the engineer repair it?

    * We went home.
    * Anthony drove us.

    * Do you need a table for three?
    * Did John and Mary beat you at doubles?

    * They played doubles.
    * John and Mary beat them.

    When we are talking about a single thing, we almost always use it. However, there are a few exceptions. We may sometimes refer to an animal as he/him or she/her, especially if the animal is domesticated or a pet. Ships (and some other vessels or vehicles) as well as some countries are often treated as female and referred to as she/her.

    Here are some examples:

    * This is our dog Rusty. He's an Alsation.
    * The Titanic was a great ship but she sank on her first voyage.
    * My first car was a Mini and I treated her like my wife.
    * Thailand has now opened her border with Cambodia.

    For a single person, sometimes we don't know whether to use he or she. There are several solutions to this:

    * If a teacher needs help, he or she should see the principal.
    * If a teacher needs help, he should see the principal.
    * If a teacher needs help, they should see the principal.

    We often use it to introduce a remark:

    * It is nice to have a holiday sometimes.
    * It is important to dress well.
    * It's difficult to find a job.
    * Is it normal to see them together?
    * It didn't take long to walk here.

    We also often use it to talk about the weather, temperature, time and distance:

    * It's raining.
    * It will probably be hot tomorrow.
    * Is it nine o'clock yet?
    * It's 50 kilometres from here to Cambridge.
