Pronouns

  1. 1. PRONOUNS…take the place of a noun / nouns<br />Personal Pronouns:<br />Possessive Pronoun Adjectives: (ppa)<br />I -------me<br />you---you<br />she, he, it-----her, him, it<br />we----us<br />you---you<br />they---them<br />Nominative Case-----<br />-------Objective Case<br />These sit in the same position as the articles (a, an, the). They act like adjectives in that they modify nouns. WATCH OUT FOR THEM!<br />my<br />your<br />his, her, its<br />our<br />their<br />
  2. 2. More Pronouns…<br />Reflexive Pronouns:<br />Intensive Pronouns:<br />myself<br />yourself<br />himself, herself, itself<br />ourselves<br />themselves<br />Please write them as one word – do not separate them into two words unless in rare occasions where you are doing so on purpose for emphasis.<br />(same words as the ones to your left, but used for emphasis as in the example below:)<br />Dad himself told the story.<br />The twins made this whole mess themselves.<br />
  3. 3. Did you know that these words were also pronouns?<br />Demonstrative :<br />Be careful!<br />this <br />that <br />these<br />those<br />These words are only PRONOUNS when used alone. (no noun following them)<br />for example:<br />This is my book!<br />That is your bag.<br />What are these?<br />Are those yours?<br />this/that/these/those – can also be ADJECTIVES.<br />for example:<br />Thiscat is really friendly.<br />Thatbook is excellent.<br />Thesepens are mine.<br />Thosepencils are yours.<br />
  4. 4. Here is where it gets tricky…<br />INDEFINITE PRONOUNS: (these can be confusing when we want to be sure to agree with our verb: it is called “pronoun-antecedent agreement.”) <br />These take a singular verb:<br />anybody anything<br />nobody everything<br />everybody nothing<br />anyone something<br />everyone<br />somebodyanother<br />someone neither <br />no one either<br />oneeach<br />These take a plural verb:<br />both few many several<br />These could be either singular or plural depending on their meaning:<br />all any more most none some much<br />
