6 “Minor” Problems in Pronoun Usage
Don’t use “myself,” “themselves,” “yourself” (etc.) as subjects in sentences. For example, “Susan and myself went to the movies.” – Incorrect – Use “I” Appositives are in the same case that they are in apposition to. “Three immature sophomores, him, him, and her, behaved embarrassingly in my absence.” – incorrect - Use the possessive case of a noun or pronoun before a gerund or gerund phrase. (Not so “minor” a problem!) “Given their status as potential school leaders, I was surprised by the students’ behavior.” (behavior = noun) “Since I had earlier warned students about their behavior in my absence, I was surprised by them giving so much grief to an innocent and friendly substitute.” gerund
