Pronouns as Objects of Prepositions

Pronouns as 

Objects of a Preposition

\"\"

\"\"

Prepositions like nouns or pronouns after them!

As the chart shows him, them, and it are the pronouns used as the object of the preposition.

The following chart shows prepositions combined with singular or plural pronouns:

One Object Pronoun-Two Uses

\"\"

For example, when you see a sentence like, “Peter stands between us,” between is the preposition and “us” is the pronoun used as the object of the preposition. In \”Tony loves us\”, the pronoun \”us\” serves as a direct object pronoun. 

The chart below will help you remember that us is an object pronoun. It can stand alone as a direct object pronoun or it combines with a preposition.

\"\"

Remember, at the end of the previous lesson, we mentioned a bonus coming up. We now explain the double use of object pronouns.

Object pronouns me, you, him, her, it, us, you, them stand alone as direct objects. Use the same pronouns as the object of a preposition.

More details on reading charts also appear in the final chapter.

Following the practice for this section, you will find a summary that combines what was covered in the three lessons on subjects and objects.
