A Brief Review
Now, let's practice...
Name persons, places, things, or ideas.

Examples: doctor, Oprah, school, Fallbrook, bagel, Diet Coke, love
Take the place of a noun or another pronoun. The word or group of words that the pronoun replaces is the pronoun's antecedent.

Examples: Yellow ribbon, ten students, more energy, next school year, a fabulous catch, Persian rug, desk drawer
Modify--or tell more about--verbs, adjectives, and other adverbs.

Examples: hopefully, rapidly, somewhat, always, much, today, quite, rather, too
Connect another word in a sentence to a noun or pronoun (and its modifiers, if any) to form a prepositional phrase.

Examples: because of, through, during, on, off, over, under, upon
Join words or groups of words.

Examples: For, And, Nor, But, Or, Yet, So (FANBOYS), both...and, either...or
Express mild or strong emotion.

Examples: ah, bravo, good grief, hey, hooray, oops, ouch, ugh
