Transcript of Pronoun Antecedent Agreement

Pronoun-Antecedent Agreement
A pronoun works to take the place
of a noun or noun phrase.
An antecedent of a pronoun is

Pronouns and antecedents MUST be either
both singular or both plural.
A pronoun must also agree in number, case, and gender with its antecedent.

Anybody
Anyone
Each
Either
Everybody
Everything
