  • POINTS OF VIEW AND PRONOUN CONSISTENCY When you write from a point of view, each point of view gets its own form.  First-person point of view  Pronouns are in the I (singular) or we (plural) forms.  Second-person point of view  Pronouns are in the you forms, whether they are singular or plural.  Third-person point of view  Pronouns are in the he, she, or it (singular) or the they (plural) forms.Copyright © 2012 by Pearson Education, Inc.
  • CHOOSING THE CASE OF PRONOUNS Pronouns have forms that show number and person, and they also have forms that show case. The rules for choosing the case of pronouns are simple: 1. When a pronoun is used as a subject, use the subjective case. 2. When a pronoun is used as the object of a verb or the object of a preposition, use the objective case.Copyright © 2012 by Pearson Education, Inc.
  • CHOOSING THE CASE OF PRONOUNS Plural Subjective Objective Possessive Pronouns Case Case Case 1st person we us our 2nd person you you your 3rd person they, them, their who, whom, whose whoever whomeverCopyright © 2012 by Pearson Education, Inc.

  • CHOOSING THE CASE OF PRONOUNS If the pronoun is part of a related group of words, isolate the pronoun. Next, try out the pronoun choices. Then decide which pronoun is correct and write the correct sentence.Copyright © 2012 by Pearson Education, Inc.
  • COMMON ERRORS WITH CASE OF PRONOUNS Be careful to avoid these common errors: 1. Between is a preposition, so the pronouns that follow it are objects of the preposition. 2. Never use myself as a replacement for I or me. 3. The possessive pronoun its has no apostrophe. 4. Pronouns that complete comparisons can be in the subjective, objective, or possessive case. 5. Who and whoever are in the subjective case. Whom and whomever are in the objective case.Copyright © 2012 by Pearson Education, Inc.
