A complete PRONOUNS presentation

  1. 1. Miss Nur Hani Laily
  2. 2. In linguistics and grammar, a pronoun is a word or form that substitutes for a noun or noun phrase. It is a particular case of a pro-form.
  3. 3. Common types include the; Personal pronouns, Possessive pronouns, Reflexive pronouns, Relative pronouns, Demonstrative pronouns, Interrogative pronouns, Indefinite pronouns.
  4. 4. Personal pronouns denote an entity of a specific grammatical person: first person (as in the case of I, me, we, etc.), second person (as in the case of you), or third person (he, she, they, etc.)
  5. 5. Possessive pronouns are used to indicate possession or ownership. – In a strict sense, the possessive pronouns are only those that act syntactically as nouns. English example: Those clothes are mine. – Often, though, the term "possessive pronoun" is also applied to the so-called possessive determiners (or possessive adjectives). For example, in English: I lost my wallet. They are not strictly speaking pronouns because they do not substitute for a noun or noun phrase, and as such, some grammarians classify these terms in a separate lexical category called determiners (they have a syntactic role close to that of adjectives, always qualifying a noun).
  6. 6. Reflexive pronouns are used when a person or thing acts on itself. English example: John cut himself.
  7. 7. Relative pronouns refer back to people or things previously mentioned. English example: People who smoke should quit now.
  8. 8. Demonstrative pronouns distinguish the particular objects or people that are referred to from other possible candidates. English example: I'll take these.
  9. 9. Interrogative pronouns ask which person or thing is meant. English example: Who did that?
  10. 10. Indefinite pronouns Indefinite pronouns refer to general categories of people or things. English example: Anyone can do that.
