Timer:  

Pronoun Case


Rule 3:
Use objective case to name the receiver of an action (the object of the verb).
Examples:

• The manager agreed to show us the movie at no cost.
• Please introduce him to the group.
• I told her to be here at 8:00 this morning.

We can always locate the objective of the verb by saying the verb and then asking "who?" or "what?"

Example:

• Please introduce him to the group."
We can read the verb introduce and ask "who?" The answer is "him"-so him is the object.
