You've likely read many stories whose use of a third person perspective gave you a broader idea of plot and character. Some of these may even be featured on your May exam! In light of this, it is important to note that third person point of view can be recognized from the use of the "they/them", "he/him", "she/her" or "it" pronouns.

🌷Objective = The speaker reports as a neutral observer.
The narrative is presented without interpretation or bias from any of the characters.

🌼 Limited = The speaker knows only one character's thoughts and feelings.
This one sided perspective is usually, but not always, reserved for the protagonist.

🌹Omniscient = The speaker knows the thoughts and feelings of all characters.
The outside nature of the narrator typically lends to greater reliability.
