Find Object Pronouns in Sentences

An object pronoun takes the place of the object of a sentence. Me, us, you, him, her, it and them are all object pronouns.
Object pronouns usually appear near the middle or the end of the sentence (after the verb) and tell what or who is receiving the action in the sentence.


Read the following example sentences. Here, each object pronoun is underlined.

1. Levi voted Jacob as classroom president.
Levi voted him as classroom president.

('Him' takes the place of "Jacob")
2. Stan convinced Sarah to try the fish.
Stan convinced her to try the fish.

('Her' takes the place of "Sarah")
3. The cat chased the ball through the house.
The cat chased it through the house.

('It' takes the place of "the ball")
4. Wilma set the books down before opening the door.
 Wilma set them down before opening the door.

('Them' takes the place of "the books")
5. Sally came to the arcade with my sister and me.
Sally came to the arcade with us.

('Us' takes the place of "my sister and me")

First and Second Person Object Pronouns
First and second person object pronouns ('Me' and 'You') are not often used as replacement words since they specifically describe or address a point of view.

For example: -
1. Anna and Justin planned to visit Mom and me today.
  • 'Me' cannot be replaced since it is a first person object pronoun and refers specifically to the person speaking.
2. I will give you the glue when I will finish my work.
  • 'You' cannot be replaced since it is a second person object pronoun and refers specifically to the person being spoken to.
