In linguistics, a subject pronoun is a personal pronoun that is used as the subject of a verb.[1] Subject pronouns are usually in the nominative case for languages with a nominative–accusative alignment pattern.

In English the subject pronouns are I, you, he, she, it, we, they, what, and who. With the exception of you, it, and what, and in informal speech who,[2] the object pronouns are different: i.e. me, him, her, us, them and whom (see English personal pronouns).
