  4. 4. Personal Pronouns Personal pronouns refer to specific persons or things. Douglas reads stories. He likes fairy tales. The word “he” is a personal pronoun that refers to “Douglas”.
  5. 5. Reflexive pronouns These are pronouns that have quot;-selfquot; or quot;-selvesquot; on the end. Teddy read the book to himself. The reflexive pronoun is quot;himself.quot;
  6. 6. Possessive pronouns These show who owns something (and they don’t have apostrophes). Ours, his, their, and her are possessive pronouns. That book is Fluffy’s book. That book is his book. The word quot;hisquot; is a possessive pronoun.
