  • Pronouns are words that we use instead of nouns in a sentence. These pronouns are used to refer to a noun that has already been mentioned in a sentence.
  • Pronouns allow us to tell and write better stories.
  • A few examples of singular pronouns are ‘he’, ‘she’, ‘it’, ‘I’ and ‘you’. The words ‘we’, and ‘they’ are plural pronouns. In this lesson, we will discuss ‘I’, ‘you’, ‘we’, and ‘they’.

The Use of ‘I’:

  • I’ is a singular pronoun. We use ‘I’ to refer to what the speaker is doing or what the speaker talks about herself or himself in a sentence.
  • When we talk about ourselves, we don’t take our names. Instead of that, we use ‘I’.


In this sentence, the speaker says that he is a cook. It means he is describing himself by using the word ‘I’.

Use of ‘You’

We use the pronoun ‘you’ when we speak directly to another person. In the example below, the speaker is giving a compliment directly to another person standing next to her. Instead of taking her name, she used the pronoun ‘you’.

Use of ‘We’

Pronouns that replace more than one noun are called plural pronouns. ‘We’ is a plural pronoun. ‘We’ is used to talk about a group of people that includes the speaker or the writer.

Here, the speaker is talking about herself and her friends Sally and Tom. Instead of repeating the proper nouns Sana and Tom, the speaker used ‘we’.

Use of ‘They’

We use the pronoun ‘they’ when we describe other persons. It replaces more than one noun. So, whenever the sentence is refering to more than one thing or person, we use ‘they’.

They’ replaced the two proper nouns ‘Abha’ and ‘Arya’.


The pronoun ‘you’ can be used as a singular and as a plural pronoun when speaking to two people at the same time.
