3 Length: Approximately 5 minutes

4 Pronouns A pronoun is a word that replaces a noun.

5 Some common examples of pronouns: Imyyouhershe himthey alleveryone someone myself

6 Example of a pronoun in use: Madison had to stop playing soccer to get a drink of water. (noun) She had to stop playing soccer to get a drink of water. (pronoun) In the second sentence, the proper noun, “Madison,” is replaced by the pronoun, “she.”

7 Pronouns are useful because, without them, writing can be very boring and repetitive.

8 For example: Boring and repetitive: Madison had to stop playing soccer to get a drink of water. Madison was very thirsty and Madison’s throat was dry. Better: Madison had to stop playing soccer to get a drink of water. She was very thirsty and her throat was dry.
