How To Use Object Pronouns
We all know what pronouns are but do you know what object pronouns are? Don't stress out; we've got you covered! This topic isn't complex; it's all about grasping the information being taught to you. Let's look at how to use object pronouns and how we can include them in our daily conversations and learn the English language in a more detailed manner.
What Are They?
An object pronoun is also a pronoun, but there's a difference in placement. An object pronoun is a pronoun that is placed after a verb in a sentence. An object pronoun will be on the receiving end of a pronoun of an action verb. For example: "My sister picks her up every evening." Here, sister is the subject, picks is the verb, and her is the object pronoun.
Let's have a look at the subject-object agreement.
1. I - Me 2. He - Him 3. She -Her 4. We - Us 5. They - Them 6. Who -Whom
Let's look at some examples:
1. Dora likes Walter.
Dora likes him.
2. Tom wants to go out with Daffy.
He wants to go out with her.
Singular and Plural
Singular object pronouns include:
- Me - You - Him/Her/It
Plural object pronouns include: - Us - You - Them
How To Use Object Pronouns in a Sentence
Let's look at some examples:
3. The doctor told me to drink more water. The doctor told me to drink more water.
4. Did Emma tell you what time she was going to come? Did she tell you what time she was going to come?
5. I'm going with Hannah to eat dinner. I'm going with her to eat dinner.
6. My salad is in the fridge. Can you please get it for me?
7. My dog is not feeling too good. I'll take him to the vet tomorrow.
8. She is taking Harold for a drive. She is taking him for a drive.
9. We will be scolded by Anna for arriving late. Anna is going to scold us for arriving late.
10. Have they told you when to join their office? Have they told you when to join their office?
Rule of Thumb
An object means something on the spot, where an action is being directed. Keeping that in mind, let's learn the English language's intricacies and where exactly one should use an object pronoun.
Placed on the receiving end, object pronouns play an integral role in completing the sentence because they are the subject's focus. Object pronouns can also be placed after a preposition, such as in examples 2 and 5.
An Exercise For You
Following are a few exercises for you to practice your object pronoun placement.
11. Shelly will take Peter to the park tomorrow. 12. Raymond doesn't know Elizabeth enough to make a proposal. 13. Have you spoken to Skip, Sutherland, Dembe, and Ben? 14. Is Alisa fine with taking the dog for a walk? 15. Have Chris and Diego reached out to you? 16. What are George and Lewis up to? 17. Is Leona getting food for you and me?
Learning what object pronouns are can be confusing if you're studying them for the first time. But don't worry, learning is a process and one that each individual does throughout their life. In a sentence, subject pronouns take the place of the noun responsible for the action, and object pronouns take the place of the noun on the receiving end.
All you have to do is keep in mind an object pronoun's placement - that is, with either a verb or a preposition. No later, you'll realize you're an English Maestro!
