What is a Pronoun?

  • A pronoun is a word that is used in place of a noun or another pronoun.

    • A pronoun can refer to a person, place, thing, or idea.

    • The word that a pronoun refers to is called its antecedent.


Examples:

  • Ramon visited Death Valley, and he was impressed.

  • Death Valley is mysterious. It is silent.


Personal Pronouns

  • Pronouns such as we, I, he, them, and it are called personal pronouns.

    • Personal pronouns have a variety of forms to indicate different persons, numbers, and cases.

Possessive Pronouns

“Mine! Mine! Mine!”


What is a Possessive Pronoun?

  • A possessive pronoun is a pronoun used to show ownership or relationship.

    • The possessive pronouns my, your, her, his, its, our, and their come before nouns.

    • The possessive pronouns mine, yours, hers, his, ours, and theirs can stand alone in a sentence.

What are Reflexive and Intensive Pronouns?

  • A pronoun that ends in self or selves is either a reflexive or intensive pronoun.

Reflexive Pronouns

  • A reflexive pronoun refers back to the subject and directs the action of the verb back to the subject.

    • Reflexive pronouns are necessary to the meaning of the sentence – you need it so the sentence makes sense.

      • Example – Houdini called himself a master escape artist.


Intensive Pronouns

  • An intensive pronoun emphasizes a noun or another pronoun in the sentence.

    • They are not necessary to the meaning of the sentence – you can take them out and the sentence will still make sense.

      • Example – I myself like to perform magic tricks.


Interrogative and Demonstrative Pronouns

Chapter 3, Lesson 6, Page 70


Interrogative Pronouns

  • An interrogative pronoun is used to introduce a question.

    • Examples:

      • Who made up this riddle?

      • Which riddle are you talking about?

      • What riddle book did you read?

Who vs. Whom

  • Who is always the subject of the sentence. It is the person doing the action.

  • Whom is used as the person that is receiving the action.


Demonstrative Pronouns

  • A demonstrative pronoun points out a person, place, thing, or idea.

    • The demonstrative pronouns – this, that, these, those – are used alone in a sentence.

      • This is Nemo and his father.

      • That is the ocean they live in.

      • Those are their friends.


Indefinite-Pronoun Agreement

Chapter 3, Lesson 8, Page 76


Indefinite Pronouns

  • An indefinite pronoun does not refer to a specific person, place, thing or idea.

    • Indefinite pronouns do not have antecedents.

      • Examples:

        • Something unusual is going on in Disney World.


  • Some indefinite pronouns are always singular, some are always plural, and some can be either singular or plural.

Any pronoun containing one, thing or body is SINGULAR.


Singular Indefinite Pronouns

  • Use a singular personal pronoun to refer to a singular indefinite pronoun.

    • Example:

      • Everyone took his or her camera.


Plural Indefinite Pronouns

  • Use a plural personal pronoun to refer to a plural indefinite pronoun.

    • Example:

      • Several reported their sightings of the monster.


Singular or Plural Indefinite Pronouns

  • Some indefinite pronouns can be singular or plural.

    • The phrase that follows the indefinite pronoun will often tell you whether the pronoun is singular or plural.

      • Example: Most of the monster story has its origin in fantasy.
