7th Grade Language Arts / Lesson 2.2.1: Pronouns(Day 1)

Subject Pronouns

The pronouns I, he/she/it, we, they, who/whoever always function as the subject in a sentence

In contrast the pronouns me, him/her, us, them, whom/whomever never function as the subject in a sentence.

Example:

 Always

 Never

 I left early.

 Me left early.

 He left early.

 Him left early.

 We left early.

 Us left early.

 They left early.

 Them left early.

 Who left early?

 Whom/ Whomever left early.

The pronoun you can also be a subject:  You left early

However, you does not always perform the function of a subject:  Tom likes you.   In this example Tom is the subject not you.
