What are subject pronouns?

A subject pronoun, also called subjective or subject personal pronoun, is used as substitute for proper and common nouns.
Examples
John is a doctor - He is a doctor
The laptop is on the desk - It is on the desk
A subject pronoun is used when the pronoun is the subject of the sentence.
Example
______ did the job.
I, you, he, she, it, we, and they all fit into the blank and are, therefore, subject pronouns.
A subject pronoun indicates:
·         number: singular or plural,
·         gender: male or female,
·         person: first, second or third person.
Examples
I
I (first person singular)
you (singular)
you (second person singular)
he
She (third person singular female)
she 
He (third person singular male)
it
It (third person singular inanimate )
we
We (first person plural)
you plural 
You (second person plural)
they
They (third person plural)
The words "I, you, he, she, it, we, you, they" are subject pronouns. They refer to a person or thing in speech or in writing.
