5 REFLEXIVE PRONOUNS reflect back to the subject
Congratulate yourself! REFLEXIVE PRONOUNS reflect back to the subject herself I saw myself in the mirror. Kim wrote a note to herself. They served themselves last. **HINT** ends in –self or –selves. If you take it out of the sentence and it doesn’t make sense, you need it, it’s reflexive! Refers to the subject and is necessary for the sentence to make sense himself itself themselves refer back to the subject

6 emphasizes antecedent
INTENSIVE PRONOUN emphasizes antecedent An intensive pronoun emphasizes its antecedent and is not needed for the sentence to make sense. I myself saw him. She herself organized the concert. The president himself has denied the rumor. *if you take out the underlined pronoun the sentence still makes sense. Ends in –self or -selves The principal herself congratulated us.

Want this? DEMONSTRATIVE PRONOUNS POINT OUT A SPECIFIC PERSON, PLACE, THING OR IDEA I hate this. Did Megan give you that? She wants these. Will you be using those? this that these those

QUESTION WORDS who whom whose INTERROGATIVE PRONOUNS: Introduces a question PRONOUNS USED TO ASK QUESTIONS What is the answer to the last question? Whose book is this? Who are you? Whom did you send to the store? **Who, Whom, Whose, What, Which** What's bugging you? Whom should I give this to?

10 conjuction pronoun RELATIVE PRONOUN works as a pronoun
RELATIVE PRONOUN RELATES TO A WORD THAT COMES BEFORE (ANTECEDENT) AND JOINS IT TO A DEPENDENT CLAUSE 2 JOBS: A PRONOUN + A CONNECTOR She is a woman. She runs for mayor. She is the woman, who runs for mayor. You saw the house. It is historical landmark. The house that you saw is a historical landmark. works as a pronoun

A relative pronoun clause modifies a noun or a noun phrase. Relative clauses give essential information to define or identify the person or thing we are talking about. An example using the relative pronoun that in the sentence "This is the house that Jack built." Here that Jack built is a relative clause modifying the noun house.

They are used to provide extra information. This information can either: define something (defining clause), Example: The girl who is standing there is a world champion in karate. or provide unnecessary, but interesting information (non-defining clause). Example: Michael Jackson, who was a famous singer, will always be known as the king of Pop music.
