  1. Using pronouns Grade 7 chapter 10

  2. CASE -- pronouns Case is used to show relationship to other words in the sentence Nominative case I, you, he, she, it, we, you, they used as subject of the verb used as a predicate nominative Objective case me, you, him, her, it, us, you, them used as direct or indirect objects used as the object of the preposition Possessive case Shows ownership or possession- mine, yours, his, hers, its, ours, theirs some can be used as adjectives when used before a noun-my, your, his, her, its, our, their)

  3. nominative case Subject -The subject tells whom or what the sentence is about, subject of the verb Predicate nominative- completes a linking verb, identifies/renames the subject of the sentence He and I mowed the lawns. (S) The members of the team are they. (PN)

  4. objective case Direct object- complete the action verb and tells who or what receives the action Indirect object- comes between the action verb and direct object~~ tells TO/FOR whom or what the action was done Object of the preposition- the pronoun that follows the preposition (in a prep. phrase)

  5. WHO and WHOM • Subject form = WHO • Object form= WHOM • Strategy when used in a question: 1. change the question to a statement 2. ask : Is the pronoun a SUBJECT, PN, DO, IO, or OP? 3. If it is the SUB or PN = WHO 4. If it is the DO, IO, OP = WHOM

  6. Appositives When a pronoun is followed by a noun that helps identify the pronoun, it is called an appositive (We, US) Girl Scouts swam laps Strategy- omit one of the pronouns and read the sentence. We Girl Scouts swam laps. or Us Girl Scouts swam laps. The answer is WE

  7. Reflexive pronouns • Always use the reflexive forms: (necessary for the meaning of the sentence) see page 77 • himself, herself, itself, themselves • Do not use versions such as: theirselves, hisself, theirselfs
