nominative1
NOMINATIVE
  • Needed when the personal pronoun is used as (1) the SUBJECT of a verb or as a (2) PREDICATE NOMINATIVE
  • Ex: I like cheesecake. (I is the subject of the verb like.)
  • The captains of the chess team are he and I. (He and I are the predicate nominatives, renaming captain.)
  • Predicate nominative: word/group of words that is in the predicate (tells something about the subject) and that identifies the subject or refers to it.

  • Predicate nominative: word/group of words that is in the predicate (tells something about the subject) and that identifies the subject or refers to it.

Ex: The winners should have been they. (They refers to the subject winners.) Sounds weird, right?!

What a fine speaker you are! (Speaker identifies the subject you.)

Notice: Typically, predicate nominative follows a linking verb.

objective1
OBJECTIVE
  • Used when the personal pronoun is (1) the DIRECT OBJECT of a verb, (2) and INDIRECT OBJECT of a verb, or (3) the OBJECT of a PREPOSITION
  • Ex 1: The little boy hit her with a rock. (Her is the direct object of the verb hit.)
  • Ex. 2:John gave her candy for Valentine’s Day. (Her is the indirect object of the verb gave; candy is the direct object.)
  • Ex. 3: John gave the candy to her. (Her is the object of the preposition to.)

DOs and IOs
  • Direct objects: nouns, pronouns, or word groups that tell WHO(M) or WHAT receives the action of a transitive verb (verb that has an object or receives action)

Ex: I took my sister to see a movie. (I took WHOM? Sister.)

  • Indirect objects: noun, pronoun, or word group that often appears in sentences containing direct objects; often tells TO WHOM or FOR WHOM or TO WHAT or FOR WHAT

Ex: Margie read us her report. (Margie read what (DO)? Report. To whom (IO)? Us.)

Phillip left you this message. (Phillip left it for whom (IO)? You.)

OPs
  • Object of the preposition: Noun or pronoun (not a verb!) that follows a preposition

Ex: A koala is a marsupial with an external abdominal pouch. (Pouch is the object of the preposition with.)

possessive1
POSSESSIVE
  • Show possession/ownership; never use an apostrophe!! Can function in the same way that nominative and objective pronouns are used, or used to modify nouns/pronouns.

Ex: This is your key. (Your modifies key.)

The car is hers. (Hers is the predicate nominative.)

it is
IT IS!!
  • They is the predicate nominative of these

Now, get to work, son!
