SUBJECT PRONOUNS

Subject pronouns are used as grammatical subjects in a sentence.
A subject pronoun does the action of the sentence instead of receiving the action, as an object does.

singular I
you
he
she
it
plural we
you
they

In English, sentences must begin with the subject. If the subject is not determined by some appellation or a name, then personal pronoun must be used:

won’t be late.
You remind me of my brother.
He left five minutes ago.
It’s raining.
We came back on Monday.


OBJECT PRONOUNS

An object pronoun receives the action instead of doing the action itself. They are contrasted with subject pronouns.

singular me
you
him
her
it
plural us
you
them

This type of pronoun always stands after a verb:

I love her.
I haven’t seen them.
The driver asked him where to go.

If a preposition appears directly after a verb then a personal pronoun stands right after a preposition:

The girl smiled at us.
Please, don’t go without me.


POSSESSIVE ADJECTIVES 

Possessive adjectives called “possessive pronouns” determine the affiliation of something or relation with somebody.

singular my
your
his
her
its
plural our
your
their

Possessive adjective always appears before determining the noun.

You cannot use possessive adjective without a noun:

My sister is older than me.
Her father was a famous musician.
It was an old table. Its legs were broken.
These are our tickets.
