Personal Pronouns



Personal Pronouns :



These Pronouns are so called because they stand for the three persons.

(a) The First, which denotes the person speaking such as I, we, myself and ourselves.

I (the person now speaking) will do all I can to win a prize at the end of the year.

(b) The Second, which denotes the person spoken to such as thou, you and yourself.

You (the person now spoken to) should try to be more careful.

(c) The Third, which denotes the person or thing spoken of such as he, she, it, himself, herself and itself.

He (the person already mentioned) did a good day's work with his tutor.
