Person and number

All verbs have a "person" and a "number."

"Person" is either first, second, or third person.

  • First person is the person speaking. "I" and "we" are examples of first person.
  • Second person is the person being spoken to. "You" is second person.
  • Third person is everything else. "He," "she," and "it" are third person, but so is everything else, like "boat" or "car."

"Number" is either singular or plural.

  • Singular means one.
  • Plural means more than one.
