1 A pronoun is a word used in place of one or more nouns. Zac Lawrence Taylor Crowder

2  Singular- I, you, he, she it  Plural- we you they  Definition: Can stand as a Subject of the verb, or a predicate pronoun.

3 Ex.1 She redecorated the room. Subject of a Verb Ex.2 The first speaker will be he. Predicate Pronoun Notes- Subject of a verb nominatives are always the subject of the sentence. Predicate pronouns are the pronouns in a predicate, after the subject. Nominatives are always the first person speaking.

5 Ex.1 Bill sent David and me tickets. Indirect Object Ex.2 Nick recognized them immediately. Direct Object Ex.3 I dropped the dry cleaning for her. Object of a Prep. Notes- Direct objects are the persons or thing, having the action done to them. Indirect object is a noun or pronoun that comes after an action verb, and before a direct object. They are also the noun or pronoun receiving something, whether it be an item or action.

6  Singular- My, mine, your, yours, his, her, hers, it  Plural- our, ours, your, yours, their, theirs Definition- All these words are to show possession over something.

7 Ex.1 This is my ball, and that one is yours. To show Possession Ex.2 Their house is being repainted. To show possession Notes- Possessive pronouns are used ALWAYS to show possession.

8  Relative pronouns are not broken into singular and plural. The words are : who, whose, whom, which, and that. Definition- Used to begin adjective clauses.

9 Ex.1 Here is the jacket | that I bought. Ex.2 Is this the man | whom you were talking to? Notes: Begins a subordinate clause, and connects it to another idea in the same sentence. The lines above are shown to separate the independent clauses, and subordinate clauses.

10  Singular- myself, yourself, himself, herself, itself  Plural- ourselves, yourselves, themselves Definition- Self-selves form of personal pronouns.

11 Ex.1 I bought myself a Christmas present this year. Ex.2 I think they should quiet themselves down so we can concentrate. Notes- There are no such words as hisself or theirselves.

12  Interrogative pronouns are not broken into Singular and Plural. The words are : Who? Whose? Whom? Which? What? Definition- Used in questions.

13 Ex.1 Which one did you want? Ex.2 What did the car look like? Ex.3 To whom did you ask about the game? Notes- Most of the interrogative pronouns can also be used as relative pronouns.

14  Singular- This, that  Plural- These, those Definition- Points out a specific person place or thing.

15 Ex.1 These are the nice people who took me in for the night. Ex.2 This is what I want for my birthday. Notes- A demonstrative pronoun can come before or after its antecedent. An antecedent is the noun (or group of words acting as the noun) for which a pronoun stands. Sometimes an antecedent will come after the pronoun. The Latin prefix ante- means “before”.
