Pronouns and antecedents
Pronouns and Antecedents

  • Pronoun: a word that replaces an already-mentioned noun

  • Antecedent: the original noun that the pronoun has replaced


Rule 1
Rule #1

  • Pronouns and their antecedents must agree in number.

    • Singular pronouns (he, she, anyone, someone) go with singular antecedents.

    • Plural pronouns (they, them, their) go with plural antecedents.

  • During the game, a player may forget their plays.

  • If a person wants to succeed in life, they have to work hard.


Rule 2
Rule #2

  • Pay attention to gender.

    • Don’t just use he or she—use both, or change the sentence so that you can use they/them/their.

  • If any student needs help with the homework, he can email me.


Rule 3
Rule #3

  • Don’t be tricked by “I” and “me.”

    • Use “I” when you need it to be the subject of the sentence.

    • Use “me” when you need it to be the object of some action.

    • When in doubt, state it in singular form and decide which sounds better.

  • This money is for Fred and I.

  • Me and Fred made some money this weekend.


Rule 4
Rule #4

  • Don’t be tricked by who and whom.

    • Use “who” when you need it as the subject of the sentence.

      • “Who” identifies who is doing something.

    • Use “whom” when you need it as the object of a verb.

      • “Whom” identifies who is having something done to it.

  • The man who we hit with a water balloon was not happy.
