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.
