Pronouns:

A pronoun usually refers to something already mentioned in a sentence or piece of text. They are used instead of nouns to prevent repetition of the noun to which they refer.

One of the most common pronouns is it and it has no gender.

  Singular Singular Singular Plural Plural
Personal Pronoun - Subject
I
you
he/she/it
we / you
they
Personal Pronoun - Object
me
you
him/her/it
us
them
Possessive Pronouns
mine
yours
his/hers/its
ours
theirs
Reflexive Pronouns
myself
yourself
himself/herself/itself
ourselves
themselves

Example (Singular):

  • Without a pronoun:
  • The train was late, the train had been delayed. 
  • With a pronoun:
  • The train was late, it had been delayed. (Nice !)
  • In this example the train is singular, therefore the pronoun must be singular also - it.

Example (Plural):

  • Without a pronoun:
  • The trains were late, the trains had been delayed. 
  • With a pronoun:
  • The trains were late, they had been delayed. (Sounds better!)
  • In this example the trains are plural, therefore the pronoun must be plural also - they.
  • Note : the possessive determiner is not a pronoun.
Possessive Determiner / Adjective
