Pronouns

 

Pronouns:

A pronoun is a word that takes the place of a noun. IT IS NOT A NOUN!

Subject or Subjective Pronouns:

Pronouns that are used as the subject of the sentence or as the predicate noun or nominative in a sentence.

Ex:  Leslie is she.   or  She is my friend.

I, you, he, she, it, we, they

Object or Objective Pronouns:

Pronouns used as the direct object, indirect object, or object of the preposition.

Ex:  Henry is under me in the basement.  or  The story amuses you.   or The plog gives him an idea.

me, you, him, her, it, us, them

 

Pronouns:

A pronoun is a word that is used in place of a noun or another pronoun.

I,you, he, she, it are examples of pronouns. There are different types of pronouns:

  1.  Subjective- A subjective or subject pronoun is used as the subject of the sentence or a predicate pronoun.

I, you, he, she, it, we, they

 

  1. Objective-An Objective pronoun is used as a direct object, an indirect object, or an object of the preposition in a sentence.

Me, you, us, them, him, her, it

Ex: Bad storms scare me. Me is used as the direct object in this sentence, so it is an objective case pronoun.

 

Direct Object-The receiver of the action.

Ex: The boy told the story.

Indirect Object-To whom or what or for whom or what an action is done. You will never have an indirect object without a direct object.

Ex: He told me the story.

Prepositional Phrase- A prepositional phrase can be in two forms:
1. Preposition plus modifier plus object of the preposition.
Ex: in the house
2. Preposition plus object of the preposition.
Ex: around town
Predicate Pronoun-

A pronoun that comes after a linking verb and renames the subject of the sentence.

Ex: The boy is he.
