Person Examples

Person

Personal pronouns (I, you, he, she, it, we, you, they) are grouped in one of 3 categories: first person, second person and third person.

The category "first person" refers to the speaker himself or a group that includes the speaker (i.e., I, me, we and us).
"Second person" refers to the speaker's audience (i.e., you).
"Third person" refers to everybody else (e.g., he, him, she, her, it, they, them), including all other nouns (e.g., Craig, Germans, ant, mice).
