Types of Pronouns Visit www.newpathlearning.com for Online Learning Resources. © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved. 92-4074 A pronoun is a word that takes the place of a noun. A nominative case pronoun can be the subject of a sentence: I, you, he, she, we, they, and it. They just bought a new car! Objective case pronouns cannot be the subject of a sentence: me, him, her, them, and us. Did you try to text me? The pronoun you is unique because it can serve as the subject or object in a sentence. A possessive pronoun shows ownership. Never put an apostrophe in a possessive pronoun. Are these books hers? The cat scratched its ear. A reflexive pronoun ends with “self” or “ selves”: yourself, himself, herself, myself, itself, ourselves, and themselves. Always name the person before you refer back to him or her with a reflexive pronoun. A reflexive pronoun can never be the subject of a sentence. Right: Terry painted the deck all by himself. (Himself refers back to Terry.) Wrong: Dom and myself will chair the committee. (A reflexive pronoun can’t be a subject.) An indefinite pronoun refers to a nonspecific person or thing: somebody, nobody, anybody, everybody, someone, no one, anyone, and everyone. These pronouns take a singular verb. Everybody passed the test. No one wants to play ball in the rain. Pronoun Sticky Wickets: Little Words Causing Big Trouble Writers often mix up the use of I and me. To determine which to use, substitute the pronoun we . When we works, I is correct. When we doesn’t work, me is correct. Bree and ? went to the fair. “We” works in this sentence. Thus, it should be: Bree and I went to the fair. The envelope was addressed to Georgio, Martino, and ?. “We” doesn’t work in this sentence. Thus, it should be: The envelope was addressed to Georgio, Martino, and me. When a pronoun follows any form of the verb to be (is, was, were, etc.), use the nominative case, as in: The last runners to cross the finish line were Jorge and I.
