There are three kinds of personal pronouns.

  2. second person (the person being spoken to): you
  3. third person (the person being spoken about); he, she, it, they, him, her, them

A personal pronoun can be used as a subject or as an object in a sentence.

For example,

  1. What is your problem?
  2. Who can help you?
  3. Which is your schoolbag?

The emphatic pronouns are used to give emphasis to a person or thing that is

mentioned in the sentence after noun or pronoun.

For example,

  1. I baked the cake myself./I myself baked the cake.
  2. They themselves admitted their mistake.

Note: Emphatic pronouns are used after Nouns or Pronouns. They can not be used as subjects.
