Relative pronouns Indefinite pronouns (1) Personal pronouns (continued): (a) object pronouns Object pronouns are used when a pronoun is either a direct object, indirect object, or object of a preposition. Object pronouns In English: Most object pronouns are different from subject pronouns, but the same pronouns are used as direct objects, indirect objects, or objects of a preposition. Subject and object pronouns in English

him/her/it 1st person we us 2nd person 3rd person you they you them Singular

French stressed pronouns (also known as disjunctive pronouns) are used to emphasize a noun or pronoun that refers to a person. There are 9 forms in French Personal pronouns (continued) Disjunctive (Stressed) pronouns Subjec Direct t object je tu il,elle,o n nous vous ils,elles

Reflexiv Stresse e d me* te* le, la Indirec t object me* te* lui nous vous les

nous vous leur nous vous se me* te* se moi toi lui,elle,s oi nous vous eux,elles

Use of stressed pronouns for emphasis: To highlight or emphasise a pronoun, a common strategy is to double up by the addition of a stressed pronoun. e.g. Subject pronouns: Toi, tu le crois peut-tre mais lui, il ne le croit pas YOU might believe that, but HE doesnt Stressed pronouns: (subject) The stressed subject pronoun copy may equally appear at the end of the clause with the same effect: Tu le crois peut-tre toi, mais il ne le croit pas,

lui. Stressed pronouns: (subject) When third person subject pronouns are highlighted or emphasised, the stressed pronoun alone may, on occasions, be used: HE could do it THEY would know what to say Stressed pronouns: (object) A common strategy is to add a second, stressed pronoun at either the beginning or the end of the clause: He confides in ME (and not in you) HE is known to be innocent

Stressed pronouns standing alone Stressed pronouns are normally used where the pronoun stands alone, or is in a phrase without a verb: Qui est l? Moi (not *je) Qui as-tu vu? Lui (not *il) Reflexive verbs and pronouns A reflexive verb is a verb which is accompanied by a pronoun, called a reflexive pronoun, which serves to reflect the action of the verb back to the subject. Reflexive pronouns Subject Direct

object je me* tu te* il,elle,o le, la n nous nous vous vous ils,elles les Indirect object me* te* lui

Reflexive Stressed nous vous leur nous vous se me* te* se moi toi lui,elle,s oi nous

vous eux,elles Reflexive pronouns Reflexive pronouns are used only with pronominal verbs (les verbes pronominaux). They always agree with the subject of the sentence. Like object pronouns, the reflexive pronoun is placed directly in front of the verb in all tenses except the imperative. e.g. tu te lves lve-toi Reflexive pronouns Reflexive pronouns always agree with their subjects, in all tenses and moods. I will get up

2. We went to bed 3. Are you going to shave? 1. Reflexive verbs are common in French. There are many English expressions that are not reflexive in English, but whose French equivalent is a reflexive verb. to get up to make a mistake to go to bed to stop to wake up to take a walk to be bored to have fun
