What are object pronouns?

An object pronoun, also called objective pronoun, functions as the object of a verb or preposition, as distinguished from a subject or subjective pronoun, which is the subject of a verb.
Examples:
·         He begged her to live with him. (her is the object of the verb begged and him is the object of the preposition with)
·         She told them the truth. (them is the object of the verb told)
Object pronouns are used instead of object nouns, usually because we already know what the object is.
·         She's my friend. I really enjoy being with her.
·         I like this film. I saw it last week.
Object Pronouns
Object pronouns in English are the following:
me, you, him, her, it, us, them
Object pronouns come after either a verb (e.g "like") or a preposition (e.g "to").
Examples:
·         I like you but you don't like me.
·         Do you really hate her?
·         She loves sitting next to him.
·         She always writes e-mails to us.
·         He's talking to her about it.
