Lesson 4A – Modifying personal pronouns English Subject pronouns: I, you, he, she, it, we, and they Object pronouns: me, you, him, her it, us and them ASL I = He = She = We = They = Gloss personal pronouns as ME, YOU, HE, SHE, IT, WE, THEY
Lesson 4B – Modifying Possessive Pronouns Possessive nouns end with ‘s or s’ It is possible for adjectives to appear between the possessive noun and the thing associated with the noun. The tree’s green leaves Their team’s old bus Gloss possessive nouns without ‘s or s’ Replace deleted ‘s or s’ with possessive pronoun HIS, HERS, ITS, or THEIRS If there is an adjective it should be glossed following the item it describes.
Examples: Our principal’s responsibility The interpreter’s skills. The girl’s bicycle. The tree’s green leaves. Their team’s old bus.
Things to remember In English the word her can be personal or possessive. Give the book to her. That is her book. To help remember the difference gloss the personal “her” as SHE and the possessive “her” as HERS Yours vs. yours plural Gloss: YOURS or YOURS-pl
Things to remember Pronouns are signed in space according to where the related noun is placed. Only one referent = no notation Second referent on the ND side = noun/pronoun-n Third referent placed in a distinct place = noun/pronoun-cd or noun/pronoun-cn Fourth referent = non used –cn or –cd Example: The father wants his son to go to bed. Exception to the rule: Real space should reflect actual events
