Personal pronoun

Definition: It is a small word that we use in place of a person or a proper noun to avoid repetition of a proper noun.

Examples: I, we, you, they, he, she, and it are examples of personal pronouns.

Types of personal pronouns:

Personal pronouns are of three types.

First-person pronouns: The pronouns that we use for talking to persons are first-person pronouns. I and we are first-person pronouns.

Second-person pronouns: The pronouns that we use for the person we talking to are second-person pronouns. You is an example of a second-person pronoun.

Third-person pronouns: The pronouns that we use for the names of persons we talking about are third-person pronouns.

Cases of Personal Pronouns

In the English language, there are three cases of personal pronouns. Students should understand their usage.

Reflexive Pronouns
