We’re back on the grammar trail once again and are tackling subject and object pronouns. In English and Irish pronouns are words that substitute nouns in sentences e.g. I, you, he, she, we and they are examples of subject pronouns. Me, you, him, it, her, us and them are examples of object pronouns. Plus we have a Halloween themed phrase of the week which sounds scary when you hear Jarlath attempt to pronounce it.
