When Do We Use Personal Pronouns?

We use personal pronouns depending on the number:

  • I (singular)
  • We (plural)

Singular means one person.

Plural means a lot of people.

Use I when talking about yourself.

Use we when talking about you and other people.

For example:

  • I like ice cream.
  • We like ice cream.
First person, second person, and third person
  • I = 1st person

Use I when talking about yourself.

For example:

I eat ice cream.

  • You = 2nd person

Use you when talking about a friend or people.

For example:

You like ice cream.

  • He or she = 3rd person

Third person is told from an outside narrator's point of view and refers to some third party other than the speaker.

For example:

He likes ice cream.

What does gender mean?

Gender means male or female.

  • A male is a man or boy.
  • A female is a woman or girl.
  • A neuter is neither a man, nor a girl. It is used for things.

For example:

1. Mrs. Green read to the class.

What pronoun can we use instead of Mrs. Green?

  • He
  • She
  • It

If you picked b then you are correct. We chose she because

Mrs. Green = a female

So our new sentence is "She read to the class."

We replaced Mrs. Green (a noun) with she (a pronoun).

2. Tom walks his dog.

What pronoun can we use instead of Tom?

  • He
  • She
  • It

If you picked a then you are correct. We chose he because

Tom = a male

So our new sentence is "He walks his dog."

We replaced Tom (a noun) with he (a pronoun).

3. The pen is on the table.

What pronoun can we use instead of pen?

  • He
  • She
  • It

A pen = it

If you chose c then you are correct. We chose c because a pen is not a male or female. We say neuter for things.

So our new sentence is, "It is on the table."

We replaced the pen (a thing) with it (a pronoun).
