he

British English: /hiː/
American English: /hi/
He is usually translated by lui (which is in itself the object, not the subject pronoun); the subject pronoun egli is rarely used in colloquial language: he can certainly do it = lui sa farlo di sicuro. - Remember that in Italian the subject pronoun is very often understood: he came alone = è venuto da solo. When used in emphasis, however, the pronoun is stressed, and is placed either at the beginning or at the end of the sentence: he killed her! = lui l'ha uccisa!, l'ha uccisa lui! - For exceptions and particular usages, see the entry below.
