Using pronouns to give your writing punch

Using Pronouns to Give Your Writing Punch

  • When using this, that, these, those place a noun after them to clarify the antecedent; for example, this idea, those members of management, these solutions. In other words, use these words as demonstrative adjectives, not pronouns.

  • For clarity, use nouns after most indefinite pronouns: some people, each member

  • Double check indefinite pronouns. They can function as either singular, plural or either.

  • Use a possessive form before a gerund: His coming, not him coming
