What are some third person words? I am writing an essay and I always confuse first, second, and third person.

1st person- he she I me
2nd person- you they
3rd their they you

Is this correct?

Your list of words is not correct. Please see below:


1st person refers to the self - whether singular (only me) or to a group I belong to (plural):

me, I, myself, we, us


  • I drove us to the movies.

2nd person refers to someone (singular) or someones (plural) that I'm talking to:



  • You went to your grandmother's house yesterday.

3rd person refers to everyone else (and everything else):

he, him, she, her, it, they, them


  • He went with her to get it before meeting up with them.
