Transcript of Pronouns

PRONOUNS Presented by Jessica, Timothy, and Gilliana. What are Pronouns? Pronouns are used in place of nouns. Some examples of pronouns are he, she, it, her, his, him, they, and them. Think of it this way and read the sentence below :
Jenna is a skillful and talented artist. (Noun)
She is a skillful and talented artist. (Pronoun)
See how the pronoun can take a place of a noun? It's very easy like that.
The pronoun "he" is used in a place of a boy, "they can replace a noun referring to more than one, and the pronoun "it" can be used to replace a thing or object. Questions on Pronouns Identify the pronoun(s) in the sentences below:
1. Jasmine went to California, and she thought it was the coolest state ever.
2. The crowd went wild when they saw the scores for the finishing of the game.
3. Kyle and his friends went to the movies, and they agreed it was the best movie ever.
4. Angelina's family was thrilled to hear that she was accepted into Princeton with her own scholarship.
5. Tim heard a rustling noise from the bushes, and he quickly ducked under a sturdily built building. Different types of Pronouns There are also different types of pronouns. Here are
the following:
Personal, Relative, Demonstrative, Indefinite, Reflexive,Interrogative, Possessive, and Subject and Object Pronouns
Let's review about each one! Personal and Relative Pronouns
Personal pronouns take the place of common and proper nouns. They are the most basic types of pronouns that take place of an object or a person. For example, she, a personal pronoun, can take the place of Anna in a sentence. (1st person-I, me, we, us) (2nd person-you) (3rd person-she,her, he, him, it, they, them) Demonstrative, Indefinite, and Reflexive Pronouns Demonstrative pronouns represent a thing or things. Ex word- this, that, these, and those
Indefinite pronouns refer to something unspecified-Ex anybody, no one ,and few.
Reflexive pronouns all end in self or selves- myself, yourself, and themselves. Interrogative, Possessive, and Subject and Object Pronouns Interrogative pronouns are used to ask a question. Ex. who, what ,and which.
Possessive pronouns are used to show ownership (if used before nouns they become adjectives)- mine, our, your, and theirs.
Subject and object nouns are used as subjects or objects- objects:me ,him ,and them-subjects:I, he, and they
For example, in the following sentence: "Andrew and I went to the movies.", I is the subject pronoun. This is because Andrew and I are what we are mainly talking about.

Here's another example: Jenna stormed angrily towards me. In this sentence, me is the object pronoun. This is because Jenna is what we are mainly describing, including her actions, not the person referred to "me". "Me" is merely only an object that contributes to what Jenna has to do with her/him. Different kinds of Pronouns Identify the pronoun(s) and kind(s) of pronoun in each of these sentences. 1. Jane went to the beach, and she had a lot of fun.
2. Who ate the last piece of of his yummy pie?
3. This kind of bug is the last of its kind.
4. My dog has an huge house with many toys, a lot of food,
and a loving family.
5. Because that movie was so amazing, I would give it
five stars. Sources Grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammer & English-grammar revolution.com/list-of pronouns.htmlmar/pronouns1.htm & http://www.schoolhouserock.tv/ Let's work on more of them! What are Personal Pronouns? What are Relative Pronouns? Relative pronouns relate to subordinate adjective clauses. In other words, they help describe objects. For example, that is a relative pronoun, so it could be used to describe a dog, such as that dog. Here are some relative pronouns: that, which, who, whom, whose, whichever, whoever, whomever In this part of the presentation, you will be watching the School House Rock video on pronouns below.
