Transcript

  • 1. Miss Nur Hani Laily
  • 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. Common types include the; Personal pronouns, Possessive pronouns, Reflexive pronouns, Relative pronouns, Demonstrative pronouns, Interrogative pronouns, Indefinite pronouns.
  • 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. 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. Reflexive pronouns are used when a person or thing acts on itself. English example: John cut himself.
  • 7. Relative pronouns refer back to people or things previously mentioned. English example: People who smoke should quit now.
  • 8. Demonstrative pronouns distinguish the particular objects or people that are referred to from other possible candidates. English example: I'll take these.
  • 9. Interrogative pronouns ask which person or thing is meant. English example: Who did that?
  • 10. Indefinite pronouns Indefinite pronouns refer to general categories of people or things. English example: Anyone can do that.
  • 11. Pronoun Determiner Personal (1st/2nd) We We Scotsmen Possessive Ours Our freedom Reflexive Myself I did it myself Relative Which He bought the red car, which was cheaper Demonstrative This This gentleman Interrogative Who Which option Indefinite Some Some frogs
