Reflexive (reflect back on “self”)

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

    • THESE ARE NOT WORDS: hisself, ourself, theirselves


Relative (start dependent clauses)

that, which, who, whom, whose


Interrogative (ask a question)

Which? Whose? What? Whom? Who?


Demonstrative (demonstrates which one)

this, that, these, those


Indefinite (don’t refer to a definite person or thing)

Each, either, neither, few, some, all, most, several, many, none, one, someone, no one, everyone, anyone, more, much, another, both, any, other, ect.


When is Josh a “him” and when is he a “he”

  • Which is correct?

    • I like you better than him.

    • I like you better than he.

  • Both are correct, but they mean entirely different things

    • I like you better than him= I like you better than I like him.

    • I like you better than he= I like you better than he like you.


  • The winner of the award for the fastest pizza eater is (he/him).

  • Turn the sentence around to figure it out!

    • Him is the winner

    • He is the winner


Polite Pronouns

  • It is considered polite to put yourself second.

    • I and Mike want to go to town. WRONG

    • Mike and I want to go to town. CORRECT


Antecedents

  • The antecedent is the noun that the pronoun takes the place of or stands for.

  • The pronoun almost always refers to the noun closest to it. If you put pronouns in odd places, it’s hard to tell what the antecedent is.

    • It was pitch dark and my cat was still outdoors. I grabbed my flashlight to begin the search and listened for its purr.
