- He begged her to live with him. (her is the object of the verb begged and him is the object of the preposition with)

Object pronouns are used instead of object nouns, usually because we already know what the object is.
- She's my friend. I really enjoy being with her.
- I like this film. I saw it last week.
Object pronouns in English are the following:
me, you, him, her, it, us, them
Object pronouns come after either a verb (e.g "like") or a preposition (e.g "to").
- I like you but you don't like me.
- Do you really hate her?
- She loves sitting next to him.
- She always writes e-mails to us.
- He's talking to her about it.
Object pronouns differ from:
|Subject pronouns||Possessive adjectives||Possessive pronouns||Reflexive pronouns||Object pronouns|
