What are subject pronouns?
A subject pronoun, also called subjective or subject personal pronoun, is used as substitute for proper and common nouns.
Examples
John is a doctor - He is a doctor

The laptop is on the desk - It is on the desk

The subject of a sentence is a person or thing that performs the action of the verb.
Subject pronouns are used to replace the subject (person or thing) of a verb.
Example
______ did the job.


I, you, he, she, it, we, and they all fit into the blank and are, therefore, subject pronouns.

A subject pronoun indicates:
  • number: singular or plural,
  • gender: male or female,
  • person: first, second or third person.
