Object pronouns

There are two types of pronouns. Subject pronouns and Object pronouns.

Let’s see this with an example.

“Ajay kills snakes. Ajay eats snakes. Ajay cooks snakes.”

All above sentences have only one subject: Ajay. The subject is main actor of the sentence. He is the one who do all the action.

The above sentences have one object: Snake. Snake doesn’t do anything. It only receives action from Ajay. The role of an object is to receive actions from the subject.

Now, as we know, pronoun is a word  that substitutes for a noun in a sentence. Lets read above sentences by substituting pronouns in place of nouns.

“Ajay kill snakes. He eats them. He cooks them.”

Ajay being a subject noun got replaced with a subject pronoun : He.

Snake being  an object noun got replaced with an object pronoun : Them.(Not they)

Me,you,him,her,it,them,us are all object pronouns in English. In Marathi also, object form of a pronoun look different from its subject form.

“मी” doesn’t stay “मी”. It becomes “मला”. All marathi pronouns in their object form look same like what they are in subject form except they all get a suffix “ला” behind them.
