6 Pronouns Replaces nouns Instead of using the word boy or Jim, you can use he, him, his… Instead of cat, you can use it Imagine having to write or speak with no pronouns…..

7 A language with no pronouns… Julie forgot Julies homework at Julies house and Julie was late for school. Julie had to tell Julies teacher that Julie forgot Julies homework and Julies teacher was not happy. Julies teacher made Julie sit in silent lunch and do Julies homework all over again. Can you imagine having to speak like this??? This is why we have pronouns!!!

8 The paragraph with pronouns… Julie forgot her homework at her house and she was late for school. She had to tell her teacher that she forgot her homework and her teacher was not happy. Julies teacher made her sit in silent lunch and do her homework all over again. Isnt that easier???

9 Antecedents A pronoun must have an antecedent – that is the noun to which the pronoun is referring Example: Austin lost his wallet and he is looking for it everywhere. his & he refer to Austin, it refers to wallet

10 Identify the pronouns and their antecedents in the sentences below. 1.The frog ran into the road and a car ran over it. 2.Mary caught her hair in the hairdryer and scorched it terribly. 3.Scotty talked himself into going out for baseball and he is very good at it. 4.Brandon is ready for deer season and he bought a new gun with his own money.

11 Antecedents and pronouns 1.The frog ran into the road and a car ran over it. (it = frog) 2.Mary caught her hair in the hairdryer and scorched it terribly.

(himself, he=Scotty; it=baseball) 4.Brandon is ready for deer season and he bought a new gun with his own money. (he, his=Brandon)

12 Different kinds of pronouns Personal pronouns – stand for people; Bobby = he; Cindy = she; dog = it; First person – I me my mine we us our ours Second person – you your yours Third person – he him his she her hers it its; they them their theirs
