What Are Some Third Person Pronouns?

Third person pronouns include "he" "she" "it" and "they." Third person pronouns are either singular or plural and are used to replace nouns, making writing more concise. Third person pronouns can be broken down into three categories: subjective, objective or possessive and are either feminine, masculine or neutral in gender.

Subjective pronouns act out the verb, standing in as the subject of a sentence. Objective pronouns receive the action of the verb, and possessive pronouns show ownership of another noun. It is fairly easy to identify whether third person pronouns are masculine or feminine. Masculine pronouns include "he" and "him," while feminine are "she" and "her." Neutral third person pronouns include "they," "their" and "them."
