PRONOUNS!!!!

. . . And their many uses 


There are many types of pronouns!

  • Personal

  • Demonstrative

  • Indefinite

  • Interrogative

  • Relative

  • Reflexive


  • Subjective Personal Pronouns:

    • I, you, she, he, it, we, they

  • Objective Personal Pronouns:

    • Me, you, her, him, it, us, them

  • Personal Pronouns

    There are three different types of personal pronouns; possessive, subjective and objective.

    *The subjective personal pronoun acts as the SUBJECT of the sentence.*

    ~The objective personal pronoun acts as the object of a verb, compound verb, preposition, or infinitive phrase.~

    Examples of subject & object pronouns:

    • Zeus lived atop Mount Olympus, and he was the god of the heavens and earth.

    • Zeus was the ruler of weather and giver of justice. He was married to the goddess Hera.

    • Despite being married to her, Zeus had many affairs.

    • Zeus’s affairs with goddesses and mortals made her jealous.


    • Possessive Personal Pronouns:

    • My, your, his, her, our, their

      • Mine, yours, hers, his, its, ours, theirs (use when you drop the noun of the possession)

    Possessive Personal Pronouns

    Indicates that the pronoun is acting as a marker of possession and defines who owns a particular thing or person.


    Possessive examples:

    • Zeus ruled over all with his lightning and thunderbolts. His symbols were the sharp-eyed eagle and the mighty oak tree.

    • As a mother, Hera chose the cow as her symbol.

    • As a queen, she used the splendor of the peacock to remind mortals of her power.


    • Reflexive Pronouns:

      • Myself, yourself, herself, himself, itself, ourselves, yourselves, themselves

    Reflexive Pronouns

    Used when the action of the subject goes back to the subject. The subject is the same as the object. Always ends in self.


    Reflexive examples:

    • Zeus could not help himself when it came to having affairs.

    • Hera could not stop herself from being jealous about the affairs.

    • We must educate ourselves about Greek Mythology.


    • Relative Pronouns:

      • who, which, that, whom, whose

    Relative Pronouns

    Used to join two sentences about the same person or thing.


    Possessive examples:

    • Poseidon was the god of the sea and earthquakes whose brother was Zeus.

    • Poseidon’s symbols include a trident, which is a three pronged spear.

    • Poseidon was Zeus’s brother who lived mainly in an underwater kingdom.
