What are Personal Pronouns?

When the person or thing is the subject of the sentence, subject pronouns are used.

Object pronouns are used when the person or thing is the object of the sentence.


Sophia likes me but not him.

Great graphics as always. There’s a mistake in the table though. 1st person singular is Me on We.
