Transcript of Pronouns Guide

A complete guide to help you to learn about pronouns Your Guide to All Things about Pronouns Pronouns and Antecedents! You already know a little about the word pronoun know we will learn even more about them in this slide I will show what an antecedent is. An antecedent is a word that takes the place of a pronoun. For example, She is the reading teacher, an antecedent would be Mrs. Wilson, watch this Mrs. Wilson is the reading teacher. Now you try what is the antecedent in this sentence. Now this might be a little hard, but let's try it. To make it easier I will give a few options. Mrs. Cadran, Mrs. Navarro, or Mrs. Clabby. Now here is the sentence, She is a great teacher she teaches Technology. If you need help ask your teacher if you got good for you. The answer is Mrs. Cadran. That is the basics about Pronouns an Antecedents. Pronouns Introduction A pronoun is a word that takes the place of one or more nouns. For example Mr.Groelle is a math and science teacher, to put that sentence with pronouns would be like this, He is a math and science teacher, see He is a pronoun it is taking the place of Mr. Groelle. Subject and Object Pronouns Let's Try it. Now we will do another example just to make sure you get it.Like in the sentence. The pronoun is it. Now the antecedent is well in this case it can be anything so to stick with the subject I will use the word pronoun as the antecedent. Now here is a different way to tell if it is a pronoun try this sentence. He gave us a lot of work to do, but Mr. Groelle only gave math. The pronoun is he and the antecedent is Mr. Groelle. Great you are doing awesome! If you still need help look at pages 274- 276 those pages will give you some problems to do and examples to help you understand! Even after that you still need help ask Mrs. Navarro or even Mrs. Cadran ( She used to be an English teacher)! Let's Try it. You know what a subject and an object are hopefully, so this won't be much harder. A subject pronoun is a pronoun well, that is a subject, see it is really simple. It is the same for object pronoun. There is also singular and plural. Here is a little red flag this is a chart of subject and object pronouns the last three of each column are plural the top three are sing. Possessive Pronouns A pronoun that shows ownership is called a possessive pronoun. There is two types look below for them. This is mine, not hers. Pronouns after linking verbs. Do you know what a linking verb is? A linking verb is a verb that can join the subject and predicate noun. Instead of using a predicate we are going to use a pronoun for this lesson. A trick to see if the pronoun is correct, is to reverse the order of the sentence. Look at the example below. The players were they. or is it. The soccer players were them. The correct sentence is The players were they. If you got it right great and you are a quick learner.
If you didn't then it is okay ask your teacher for extra help and try the work on pg. 285 in your English book.
Now that you get it let's do more work. Directions: Pick the write word to go along with each sentence. 1. The girls working together are? They or Them.
2. The teachers grading papers quickly are. They or Them.
3. The boys playing football are. They or Them.
4. The people watch us carefully at lunch are. They or Them.
5. The girls that help each are. They or Them. Pronouns in Compounds You know what a compound sentence is two or more simple sentences joined by, and, or, or. Instead you use a subject pronouns in compound sentence. Here is an example.
Caroline or I will be reading at mass? Remember it is polite to mention yourself last. To check if the pronoun is correct, try using it alone as the subject. (Drop the other person keep yourself) For example let's use the sentence above which one do you think is correct? The teachers represented me or The teachers represented I. If you said The teachers represented I, that is correct, but if you said The teachers represented me, that one is incorrect because you wouldn't say, Me will be reading at mass? Here try this work . 1. The school congratulated Erin and (I or me) 2. The students smiled at Olivia or (I or me) 3. The books taught Madelyne or (I or me) 4. Everyone cheered for the class and (I or me) 5. The teacher listened to Gabriela and (I or me) Using who, whom, whose! To whom is she smiling to ? Is how you would correctly say that sentence. In this lesson we are learning about how to correctly use Who, Whom, and Whose.
Use who as a subject pronoun Ex. Who is the winner?
Use whom as an object pronoun. It can be used as the object of an action verb or after words such as to, in, for, and at. Ex. Whom has teacher chosen?
Whose is a possessive form of the pronoun who. Ex. Whose backpack is this? This word whose is showing ownership. Pick which one is right. 1. jacket is this?
2. are you teaching this to?
3. has Mrs. Wilson picked? Using we and us with nouns. The pronouns we and us are used to add emphasis. You use the subject pronoun, we for a subject or after a linking verb. You use the object pronoun, us with a direct object or after words like to, in, for, and at.(Tip: Actually it can be used after any preposition ). Look at this example
We students are athletic. See it is adding emphasis. Here is the sentence without we. Students are athletic. It is just the same it's just adding a little something to make it sound professional. Look at this ex. with us in it. The teachers teaches us students. Here it is without the us. The teachers teaches students. See it is the same thing with we. Find the word used for emphasis. 1. We athletes are very strong.
2. The teachers need us books.
3. We students are excited about D.C. Before nouns = Her mug is red Our glasses are clean
Stand alone = That mug is theirs Indefinite Pronouns You have learned in the beginning of this prezi that pronouns take the places of nouns and the name of those nouns that are being replaced are called antecedents. The pronoun you are about to learn about is called an Indefinite pronoun. An Indefinite Pronoun does not have a definite antecedent, an Indefinite Pronoun doesn't show a specific person. place, or thing. A little too confusing just look at this sentence. Someone forgot their books and papers. Now does it make more sense.
Some Indefinite Pronouns are singular and always take the place of a singular verb.
Other Indefinite pronouns are plural and always will take the place of a plural verb. Look at these examples.
Singular: Everybody is leaving.
Plural: All are waiting for excitement.
You get it.
Try This. Tell me which one is singular and which one is plural.
1. Some people left their papers. (Sing. or Plural)
2. Everything is left behind. (Sing. or Plural) There is a chart on page 282 in your English book that should help you. I also want you to do the problems on pg. 283 when you are done with those you can finish reading this slide. If you don't get this lesson ask your teacher. Once you are done with the work there are some examples below.
Can you find the two possessive pronouns in each sentence.
1. I use your computer for my project.
2. That is mine, this is theirs.
3. Will you let me borrow his paper, our paper is empty.
4. Mrs. Wilson uses your projector for our shield.
5. That book is theirs, and that one is mine.
