Basic English Grammar: Pronoun - 1

  • A word that functions as a substitute for a noun.

  • Pronouns are often used to refer to a noun that has already been mentioned.

  • Pro” + “noun” typically means “in place of, instead of” a noun or a noun phrase.

e.g: I asked my mother if she’d lend me some money, but she said no.

1st person singular – I, me, my, mine

plural – we, us, our, ours

2nd person singular – you, your, yours

plural – you, your, yours

3rd person singular – he, she, it, him, her, his, her, hers,

plural – they, them, their, theirs

Types Of Pronouns

I) Personal Pronouns:

> Subjective Pronouns – I, we, you, he, she, it, they.

> Objective Pronouns – me, us, you, him, her, it, them.

e.g: We didn’t decorate it ourselves. Someone else did it for us.

Below Reflexive pronoun is used when the subject and the object of the verb refer to the same person or thing.

e.g: She made herself a cup of tea and sat down in front of the television.

> Reflexive pronouns for emphasis or Intensive pronoun:

We don’t use reflexive pronouns on their own as the subject of a clause, but we can use them with a noun or pronoun to emphasis the subject.
