  • 1. PES/ENG/IX/005 Note- Master file A PUNJAB EDUSAT SOCIETY PRODUCTION SUBJECT - ENGLISH CLASS - IX CHAPTER - PRONOUNS Word count-3979 We cut to MM 1: (Dialogue between an 8-year old naughty boy Sunny, who is playing with a ball, and his mother who wants him to finish his homework. Animated Images with dialogues to be shown. Sunny is wearing a T - shirt and half pant. His mother is wearing Salwar Kameez and Chunni.) The naughty boy (Sunny) keeps running around and playing in the house. His mother scolds him- Mother - “Sunny! Enough of this. You have a lot of homework left. Why don’t you go and do your homework? You are supposed to speak a few lines about yourself tomorrow in the class. Why don’t you prepare for it? Tell me what you plan to speak?” Sunny – “Sunny doesn’t like studying. Sunny likes playing. Sunny likes TV. Sunny doesn’t like Sunny’s mother” Mother –(laughing) “Why do you repeat your name again and again? Instead of your name, use the word ‘I’ ” Sunny – “I doesn’t like studying. I likes playing. I likes TV. I doesn’t like I’s mother” Mother – “Oh no! Not like that. Say – I don’t like studying. I don’t like playing.. ok?” Sunny – “I don’t like studying. I don’t like playing. I like TV. I don’t like I mother” Mother – “No! Not ‘I mother’, say ‘my mother’ Sunny – “Oh mama! I am confused” Mother – “No not at all (Speaks emphatically) my dear. It’s rather simple! Come, Let’s see the TV program. They will talk about ‘Pronouns’ today. CUT TO ANCHOR1: 1

VO with text on screen- LEARNING OBJECTIVES After completing this episode, the students will be able to Voice-over with Text on screen (Each bullet point to be shown, as the anchor speaks.) • Recall the definition of a Noun and identify them in any given sentence. • State the need for Pronouns to replace Nouns. • Define Pronouns and give examples of commonly used Pronouns. • Use appropriate Pronouns while replacing singular or plural Nouns. • Use appropriate Pronouns with respect to the Noun's gender. • Use appropriate Pronouns while using first, second or third person. • Define and give examples of the different types of Pronouns. Introduction Anchor: Let us look at the family of the’ Pronouns’, used most commonly. (Each pronoun with the particular image is shown, one by one, as the anchor speaks, and joins the family, making a collage of the ‘Pronoun Family’) Anchor: Here come the members, one by one, ‘he’, ‘she’ ‘They’ ‘I’, ‘We ,’His’, ’Me’, ’Their’, and they all get together to make the pronoun ‘US’ 2
  • 3. PES/ENG/IX/005 (Make a picture showing different kinds of cartoon faces-girls. boys. men ,women, children ,with dialogue blobs saying ‘I’, ‘We’, ’He’, ‘She’, ‘They’, ‘Their’, and in the middle of all these words, put a dialogue blob saying ’US’ in bold letters. Image for reference is given below.) Cut to ANCHOR2: (show each bulleted word on screen along with the picture, as the anchor speaks.) Since ‘pronouns are a substitute of ‘Nouns’, let us first recall what nouns are. A noun is a word used to refer to a 3
  • 4. PES/ENG/IX/005 • Person (picture of Gandhiji) • Animal (picture of aLion) • Place (picture of Taj Mahal) • Thing (picture of a car) • Event (picture of Ravana being burnt on Dushera) • Feeling (picture of a happy girl ) • An abstract idea. It’ll be worth while to quickly go through a quiz to identify nouns- VO with TEXT on screen (Show the sentence and blink the words given below as answer after two seconds) • My brother is very fond of playing cricket. brother, cricket • Sukhmani and Jaspreet are good friends. Sukhmani, Jaspreet, friends • I visited Agra last year. Agra, year • An apple a day keeps the doctor away. apple, day, doctor • There is a book on the table. book, table • Mr. Singh was a very kind man. Mr. Singh, man • Rains are great fun! rains • Have you seen my keys? Keys Anchor 3- 4
  • 5. PES/ENG/IX/005 Nouns are easy to identify! Now, Let us hear the dialogue between Pinky and her Mother, Mrs. Kapoor. MM- 2 (Lip movements of two persons—one of a teen-aged girl with salwar kameez and a middleaged lady , again with a salwar suit to be shown, along with text in the bubbles.) VO for Pinky and Mrs. Kapoor. Mrs. Kapoor: So Pinky, how was the first day at school? Did you make some new friends? Pinky: Mummy it was a very enjoyable day, as I made a new friend, Meera. Meera is very friendly and sweet. Meera also loves to draw, like me. Meera is an intelligent girl. Meera is very fond of playing throw ball. Meera stays very close to my house. I liked Meera a lot and Meera also made friends with me. Meera will come………………… Mrs. Kapoor: Stop it Pinky! You sound so odd. Why are you repeating the name Meera, again and again? Pinky: Oh Mummy, Then what do I say? Mrs. Kapoor: It’s just the right time to see the TV Program on ‘ PRONOUNS’ You will learn all about replacing names with words called’ Pronouns’. Pinky: Oh That sounds great! Let me quickly switch it on!. Show animated picture of the girl, Pinky, running towards a TV set and switching it on. ( Pinky rushes towards a TV set and switches it on.) Cut to Anchor4: So I am sure you also must have heard Pinky talking to her mother .She sounded very incorrect when she repeated the name, ‘Meera’ nine times!! This is not how we usually speak, do we? Let us listen to the corrected form of the same dialogue by Pinky. MM-3 -Show the girl , Pinky, again talking to Mrs. Kapoor, her Mother. Show the dialogue ina bubble, with lip movement. 5
  • 6. PES/ENG/IX/005 Pinky’s voice in the background. Pinky: : Mummy, it was a very enjoyable day, as I made a new friend, Meera. She is very friendly and sweet. She also loves to draw, like me. She is an intelligent girl, and is very fond of playing throw ball. She stays very close to my house. I liked her a lot and she also made friends with me. Meera will come to my house next week. Cut to Anchor 5: Now Pinky was sounding correct.The same names of any ‘Person’, ‘Place’ or ‘Thing’ should not be repeated again and again. The words ‘she’ and ‘her’ are called pronouns. They are substitutes for the noun ‘Meera’. A pronoun, therefore, is a word which is used in place of a noun, in order to avoid unnecessary repetition. Look at some examples- (Show this sentence with the images of a boy of 8 years, wearing pants and t-shirt and the same picture of Pinky shown before, while anchor talks on the screen) Vikas is Pinky’s brother. They came to Chandigarh when he was five years old. In this sentence, ‘he’ is a pronoun. It refers to the noun ‘Vikas’. ‘They’ is also a pronoun ……… which refers to both the children together. (Show animated underlining of the pronoun – ‘he’ and ‘they’ along with their animated images.) These children go to their yoga class regularly.. In this sentence, ‘their’ is a pronoun. It refers to the noun ‘children.’ (Show animated underlining of the pronoun- ‘their’ along with the animated pictures of children.) Cut to Anchor6: You should be familiar with the pronouns in common use. Here is a list of some commonly used pronouns- MM-4 6
  • 7. PES/ENG/IX/005 (the following table could be shown in the form of a brick wall, being built by a man climbing up a ladder, and putting the pronoun bricks one by one with each pronoun on a separate brick, as it is equally divided into 3 parts. The word PRONOUNS can be written across the wall in red, in a slanting way. Or, these pronouns could be shown as a collage of words getting animated on the screen, and in the process, writing the word PRONOUN, across the screen. A sample sketch is shown below.While the wall is being made,there should be some appropriate background music.) CLIMBING THE ‘PRONOUN LADDER’ Voice Over with Text on Screen: (show the question and fill in the blank with the right answer given below by animating the answer word jumping to the blank space.) So now the’ Wall of Pronouns’ is there. It’s time for a little exercise! Think of the appropriate pronoun required to be filled in these blanks- (After a second, as the anchor speaks the answer, let it jump and fall in place of the blank.) • Sonia is absent from school today but _________ will surely come tomorrow. Ans – she • I kept my mobile phone on the desk. Please bring _______________ for me. 7
  • 8. PES/ENG/IX/005 Ans – it • Tina frightened the bird so ________ flew away. Ans. It • I am looking for my spectacles. Have you seen ______________? Ans. Them • _____________ book is not mine, __________ may be Jatin’s. Ans. This, it • The twins look very cute. _____________ always wear the same clothes. Ans. They • The boy __________ found the purse, gave __________ back to the owner. Ans. Who, it • __________ saw the students shopping for _____________ farewell party. Ans I/We, their Anchor 7: Now let’s talk about different kinds of Pronouns. Cut to our hi-tech board on which the following SUPER appears: PERSONAL PRONOUNS Personal pronouns stand for the three persons – first person, second person and third person. Pronouns can also be singular or plural. The first person represents the person speaking as – I, we, myself, and ourselves. (Blink the words one by one as they are spoken) 8
  • 9. PES/ENG/IX/005 MM-5 For example- Refer Image1.Show a group of children. Out of them one child says ’I like to play football’. Another girl says’ I can carry the baby myself.’ Two children say together,’ We like to dress up ourselves.’ Another girl says, ’We like our Teddy Bear.’ (dialogue is voice over, shown in the bubbles, blinking whenever the child speaks.)Reference image is shown below: IMAGE I can carry the baby myself. I like to play Football. We like to dress up ourselves We like our Teddy Bear The second person denotes the person the speaker is communicating with. Tina, can I help you? Geeta, is this your toy? Eg. ‘you’, ‘your’ IMAGE-2 For example- Refer Image2 (dialogue is voice over) 9
  • 10. PES/ENG/IX/005 The third person, stands for the ‘other’ thing that is referred to between the speaker and the listener. Eg. ‘His’, ‘Her’, ‘Their’,’They’, ‘Them’. We have to give them some gift. Eat fast. We have to go to their house IMAGE-3 Look at this example- Refer Image3 (dialogue is voice over) IMAGE-4 Here is another one- Refer Image4 (dialogue is VO I don’t like his friends. They are so noisy! Cut to our hi-tech board on which the following SUPER appears: Using Pronouns Clearly Cut to Anchor 8: Because a pronoun REFERS BACK to a noun or TAKES THE PLACE OF that noun, you have to use the correct pronoun so that one can clearly understand which noun your pronoun is referring to. Therefore, pronouns should: 10
  • 11. PES/ENG/IX/005 • AGREE in NUMBER (Show this heading while anchor is talking) If the pronoun takes the place of a singular noun, you have to use a singular pronoun. If a student parks a car on If a student parks a car on campus, he or she has to campus, they have to buy buy a parking sticker. a parking sticker. REMEMBER: The words EVERYBODY, ANYBODY, ANYONE, EACH, NEITHER, NOBODY, SOMEONE, A PERSON, etc. are singular and take singular pronouns. MM-6 Show the image of a classroom, where the teacher is speaking this dialogue, shown in a bubble. Watch them and note their actions. You have to tell me. Everybody ought to do his or her best. 11
  • 12. PES/ENG/IX/005 Everybody ought to do his Everybody ought to do or her best. their or her best. Neither of the girls brought her umbrella. (NOT: their umbrellas) (Show the image of three girls, where one of them is speaking the dialogue:Niether he nor she has got the umbrella.) • AGREE in PERSON (Show this heading while anchor is talking) If you are writing in the "first person" ( I), don't confuse your reader by switching to the "second person" ( you) or "third person" (he, she, they, it, etc.). Similarly, if you are using the "second person," don't switch to "first" or "third." When a person comes to class, he or she should have his or her homework ready. (NOT: When a person comes to class, you should have your homework ready.) • REFER CLEARLY to a specific noun. (Show this heading while anchor is talking) Show an animated conversation between two friends, talking on the phone.Refer to the Image given below. 12
  • 13. PES/ENG/IX/005 are talking of two things. You Is it the tree or your Bike? I hit the tree while driving. It is not damaged. Don't be vague or ambiguous. NOT: Although the motorcycle hit the tree, it was not damaged. (Is "it" the motorcycle or the tree?) SHOW ALL THE EXAMPLES WITH IMAGES AND DIALOGUES AS SHOWN ABOVE. NOT: I don't think they should show violence on TV. (Who are "they"?) NOT: Vacation is coming soon, which is nice. (What is nice, the vacation or the fact that it is coming soon?) NOT: George worked in a national forest last summer. This may be his life's work. (What word does "this" refer to?) NOT: If you put this sheet in your notebook, you can refer to it. (What does "it" refer to, the sheet or your notebook?) 13
  • 14. PES/ENG/IX/005 Cut to our hi-tech board on which the following SUPER appears: • Demonstrative Pronouns Cut to Anchor 10: ;ze/stkuekA[ (this,that,these,those,) d/ ;wz{jkA Bz{ th gVBkAtkA dh sokQ jh tofsnk ikAdk j?. gVBkAtkA d/ s'o s/ fJj BkAtkA dh gSkD eod/ jB. See that picture. That is incredible! (Refer Image) I will never forget this. (Refer Image) This is my first Aeroplane. I will never forget this. 14
  • 15. PES/ENG/IX/005 I will reach soon. Such is my belief. Such is my belief. (Refer Image) Cut to our hi-tech board on which the following SUPER appears: Relative Pronouns Cut to Anchor 11 (blink the highlighted words.) The relative pronouns (who/whoever/which/that) relate groups of words to nouns or other pronouns (The student who studies hardest usually does the best.). The word ‘who’ connects or relates the subject, student, to the verb within the dependent clause (studies). The expanded form of the relative pronouns — whoever, whomever, whatever — are known as indefinite relative pronouns. A couple of sample sentences should suffice to demonstrate why they are called "indefinite": • The coach will select whomever he pleases. • He seemed to say whatever came to his mind. • Whoever crosses this line first ,will win the race. (Please animate the underlining of words) Cut to our hi-tech board on which the following SUPER appears: Indefinite Pronouns Cut to Anchor 12: 15
  • 16. PES/ENG/IX/005 Indefinite pronouns refer to an unknown or undetermined person, place or thing. Care must be taken to identify whether the pronoun is singular or plural to ensure the proper conjugation of the verb. Some indefinite pronouns always take a singular verb, which means that the verb is conjugated for a singular subject. For example: MM-7 ----Show an animated scene. A young lady comes in with her son,who is a patient. She enters the Medical centre and says (Dialogues to be shown in bubbles) Lady:’ Where is Dr. Malhotra?’ Compounder:He is not on duty.’ Lady: Then please call Dr. Jain. My son has an injury and is very sick. Compounder: Sorry Ma’m.Neither of the doctors is ready to treat Arun’s injury by surgery. • Neither of the doctors is ready to treat Arun's injury by surgery. In this sentence, NEITHER is the subject. Because NEITHER is singular, it takes a single verb. In other words, the verb is conjugated as if the subject is a single person: NEITHER PLANS. Just as we would write THE DOCTOR PLANS. (Show this table on the screen) Always Another, Anyone, Anybody, Anything, Everyone, Everybody, singular Everything, Nothing, Each, Either No One, Neither, Nobody, One, Someone, Somebody, Something MM 8: Show a scene in a Drawing Room,where a family of four members—middle aged Father and mother and two young sons—are having a discussion on Sports. Animated Images of all the members to be shown, with dialogues in bubbles, as they move their lips while speaking. 16
  • 17. PES/ENG/IX/005 Given below is a picture for reference. Every season one or the other Someone announced players attempts to break that there won’t be Vishwanathan’s records. any game, as it is going to rain! Whatever anyone says about Chandan’s laziness, when it comes to sports, he is always active. Don’t worry! Nothing is going to happen .Everyone will be there for the game. VOICE OVER WITH TEXT AND IMAGE ON SCREEN In the following examples, the indefinite pronoun is bold and the verb is underlined. o Every season one or the other of the players attempts to break Vishwanathan’s record. o Whatever anyone says about Chandan’s laziness, when it comes to sports, he is always active! o Someone announced that there won’t be any game,as it is going to rain. Some indefinite pronouns always take a plural verb, which means that the verb is conjugated for a plural subject. For example: MM-9— 17
  • 18. PES/ENG/IX/005 Show an animated scene of two divers swimming in deep ocean. Suddenly one of them pops out his head and shout ‘I found it’.After a second, the second one also sticks out his head to say’I found the Treasure!’.Then a man comes out like a refree and announces loudly’Both the divers claim responsibility for finding the treasure,first. So we need to have a toss to decide about the winner!’ All Dialogues will appear in bubbles along with the person, speaking.Picture given below, for reference. I FOUND IT NO! I FOUND THE TREASURE! Both the Divers claim responsibility for finding the treasure first .So we need to have a toss to decide about the winner! o Both the divers claim responsibility for finding the treasure, first. o In this sentence, BOTH is the subject. Because BOTH is plural it takes a plural verb. In other words, the verb is conjugated as if the subject is more than one person: BOTH CLAIM. Just as we would write THE DIVERS CLAIM. (Show this table on the screen) Always plural Both, Few, Many, Several 18
  • 19. PES/ENG/IX/005 In the following examples, the indefinite pronoun is bold and the verb is underlined. o Both have paid the taxes due for this year.. o Many felt that the paper was very tough. o A few made the same comment, but in different ways. o Several bills contain items that were not discussed earlier. Some of the indefinite pronouns may take a plural or singular verb depending on the meaning. For example: o Some of the money remains unclaimed. In this sentence, SOME is the subject and the object of the preposition. MONEY indicates whether the verb should be singular or plural. Because MONEY in this sentence is a single unit, the verb is singular. SOME REMAINS. o Some of the children hide from the teacher. In this sentence, SOME is the subject and the object of the preposition CHILDREN indicates whether the verb should be singular or plural. Because CHILDREN in this sentence is plural the verb is plural. SOME - hide Either plural or singular ,depending on the noun. All, Most, None, Some 19
  • 20. PES/ENG/IX/005 o All the traditional groups decided to join the campaign o Almost all the money in the budget is being diverted from those programs. o None of the ways of judging the winner for the contest is simple. o It seemed as if none of the relief supplies were actually delivered. o Some of the Educationists say that the school syllabus needs to be changed. o Experts believe some of the negative campaigning appears to have been harmful for themselves. Cut to our hi-tech board on which the following SUPER appears: Intensive Pronouns Cut to Anchor 8: Intensive pronouns (such as myself, yourself, herself, ourselves, themselves—show blinked and animated) fBih gVBkAtkA d/ pD/ jz[d/ jB consist of a personal pronoun plus self or selves i' eh BkAtkA s/ i'o gkT[d/ jB. (I myself don't know the answer.) It is possible (but rather unusual) for an intensive pronoun to precede the noun it refers to. (eg.Myself, I don't believe a word he says.) It can be concluded that these intensive pronouns are used mostly for reinforcement of some comment, to make it sound more strong .Let’s have a look at this classroom, where the teacher is actively involved with the children. CUT TO MM 10--- AN Animated classroom scene, where the conversation is going on between some students and the teacher. The dialogues will appear in bubbles, when the person speaks and moves. It is a class IX group of students, with their Teacher, Miss Poonam Bali.(Reference picture below. Coloured would be preferred) 20
  • 21. PES/ENG/IX/005 Have you done your home work, yourself, Karan? Yes Ma’m, I, myself ,completed the work in two hours. : Ms. Poonam; Have you done your Home work, yourself, Karan? Karan: Yes Ma’m, I, myself, completed the work in two hours. Radha: But Ma’m, Savita could not do it herself. She, herself, told me. Ms. Poonam: Doesn’t matter. I, myself, told you to take some help, if required. Tarun Ma’m, in our group all the work is done by us, ourselves, without any help. Cut to our hi-tech board on which the following SUPER appears: Reflexive Pronouns Cut to Anchor9: The reflexive pronouns (which have the same forms as the intensive pronouns) indicate that the subject in the sentence also receives the action of the verb. (Students who cheat on this quiz are only hurting themselves. You paid yourself a million dollars? She encouraged herself to do well.) What this means is that whenever there is a reflexive pronoun in a sentence there must be a person to whom that pronoun can "reflect." In other words, the sentence "Please hand that book to myself" would be incorrect because there is no "I" in that sentence for the "myself" to reflect to (and we would use "me" 21
  • 22. PES/ENG/IX/005 instead of "myself"). A sentence such as "I gave that book to myself for Christmas" might be silly, but it would be correct. Be alert to a tendency to use reflexive pronoun forms (ending in -self) where they are neither appropriate nor necessary. The inappropriate reflexive form has a wonderful name: the ‘untriggered’ reflexive. "Myself" tends to sound weightier, more formal, than little ol' ‘me’ or’ I’, so it has a way of sneaking into sentences where it doesn't belong.( Please put a cross next to these incorrect sentences,as they are read out, one by one.) Eg. Bharat and myself I are responsible for this decision. These decisions will be made by myself me. If you have any questions, please contact myself me or Bharat. When pronouns are combined, the reflexive will take either the first person • Amit, Arun and I have deceived ourselves into believing in my uncle. or, when there is no first person, the second person: • You and Jayati have deceived yourselves. The indefinite pronoun (see above) one has its own reflexive form ("One must have faith in oneself."), but the other indefinite pronouns use either himself or themselves as reflexives. (There is an entire page on the pronoun one.) It is probably better to pluralize and avoid the clumsy himself or herself construction. • No one here can blame himself or herself. • The people here cannot blame themselves. Cut to our hi-tech board on which the following SUPER appears: Interrogative Pronouns Cut to Anchor 10: The interrogative pronouns (who/which/what) introduce questions. (What is that? Who will help me? Which do you prefer?) Which is generally used with more specific reference than what. If we're taking a quiz and I ask "Which questions give you the most trouble?", I am referring to specific questions on 22
  • 23. PES/ENG/IX/005 that quiz. If I ask "What questions give you most trouble"? I could be asking what kind of questions on that quiz (or what kind of question, generically, in general) gives you trouble. We know who is guilty of this crime. Here are some examples with illustrations:- • What makes you very happy? • Which dress did you pick up? • Who is ringing the bell? Cut to our hi-tech board on which the following SUPER appears: Reciprocal Pronouns Cut to Anchor 11: The reciprocal pronouns are ‘each other and one another.’ They are convenient forms for combining ideas. If Sonali gave Tanvi a book for Christmas and Tanvi gave Sonali a book for Christmas, we can say that they gave each other books (or that they gave books to each other). • My brother and I give each other a hard time. Reciprocal pronouns can also take possessive forms: • They borrowed each other's ideas. 23
  • 24. PES/ENG/IX/005 • The scientists in this lab often use one another's equipment. Cut to our hi-tech board on which the following SUPER appears: SUMMARY Voice Over with Text on Screen Let us quickly recapitulate whatever we have learnt in this module- • General definition: A pronoun is a word used in place of one noun or more than one noun. • Person of pronouns o first —refers to the speaker of a sentence (e.g. I, me, my) o second —refers specifically to the receiver of the sentence (e.g. you) o third —refers to someone other than me or you (e.g. him, them) • Types of pronouns: o Personal —pronouns referring to specific people (usually by their relationship to the speaker). o Reflexive —reflexives and intensives look alike (- self, -selves), but reflexives tend to complete a circular reference where the subject of the verb acts on himself or herself (e.g. I taught myself chess; that’s why I am proud of it.) o Intensive —reflexives and intensives look alike (- self, -selves), but intensives only reinforce (intensify) a noun or pronoun just mentioned in the sentence. E.g. I myself will fix the problem. o Demonstrative —pronouns that specify almost by pointing to an object (e.g. this, that, those), but be careful: these same words followed by a noun (e.g. those books ) would be demonstrative adjectives and not pronouns at all. o Interrogative —pronouns designed to interrogate, i.e. to ask a question o Relative —pronouns that relate an adjective clause to the word(s) it modifies (just as the word that relates the modifying clause to the word pronouns at the start of this sentence) o Indefinite —pronouns that make usually indefinite numerical references (e.g. many, few, both, some, anything) 24

Meet your caterpillar friend and see what he has to say. 27
  • 28. PES/ENG/IX/005 Look at the picture of the CATERPILLAR. The author calls him ‘The Hungry Caterpillar’ .Do you know that he is hungry for WORDS ? What to do: Take a piece of paper and make ‘NOUNS’ AND ‘PRONOUN’ WORDS ,as many as you can, from the main word ,”CATERPILLAR”. You can make threecolumns and write the words on the first column and the kind of Noun in the second column,and the kind of Pronoun in the third column.. Let your Teacher give you a time limit. The student who can write the maximum amount of Nouns and Pronouns from the given word , in that particular time, will be the winner. So now, go ahead and try your luck!!
