HOW TO USE
:pencil2: In the sentence Joe saw Jill, and he waved at her, the pronouns he and her take the place of Joe and Jill, respectively. There are three types of pronouns: subject (for example, he); object (him); or possessive (his)
- Subject pronouns are used when the pronoun is the subject of the sentence. You can remember subject pronouns easily by filling in the blank subject space for a simple sentence.
:pencil2: I like reading
:pencil2: They are students
- Subject pronouns are also used if they rename the subject. They will follow to be verbs, such as is, are, was, were, am, will be, had been, etc.
:pencil2: This is she speaking.
:pencil2: It is he.
- This rule surprises even language watchers: when who refers to a personal pronoun (I, you, he, she, we, they), it takes the verb that agrees with that pronoun.
:pencil2: It is I who am sorry. (I am)
:pencil2: It is you who are mistaken. (you are)
- In addition to subject pronouns, there are also object pronouns, known more specifically as direct object, indirect object, and object of a preposition. Object pronouns include me, him, herself, us, them, themselves.
:pencil2: Jean saw him. (Him is the direct object of the verb saw.)
:pencil2: Are you talking to me? (Me is the object of the preposition to.)
- The pronouns who, that, and which become singular or plural depending on the subjects. If it is plural, use a plural verb.
:pencil2: He is the only one of those men who is always on time. (The word who refers to one. Therefore, use the singular verb is.)
:pencil2: He is one of those men who are always on time. (The word who refers to men. Therefore, use the plural verb are.)
- Pronouns that are singular (I, he, she, everyone, everybody, anyone, anybody, no one, nobody, someone, somebody, each, either, neither, etc.) require singular verbs. This rule is frequently overlooked when using the pronouns each, either, and neither, followed by of. Those three pronouns always take singular verbs
