PRONOUNS

 

Pronouns are words we use on the place of the full noun.

 

  1. PERSONAL PRONOUNS
  2. POSSESSIVE PRONOUNS AND ADJECTIVES

 

1. PERSONAL PRONOUNS

- subject (I, you, he, she, it, we, you, they)

- object (me, you, him, het, it, us, you, them)

 

1. subject pronouns - as subject of the verb

I speak English.

You are late.

He is my son.

It is raining.

We live in Englang.

They come from London.

 

2. object pronouns - as object of the verb

He knows me.

I can help you.

Give it to him.

Why are you looking at her?

Don't ask us.

I'll speak to them.

2. POSSESSIVE PRONOUNS AND ADJECTIVES

 

- pronouns (mine, yours, his, hers, ours, yours, theirs)

- adjectives (my, your, his, her, its, our, your, their)

 

1. pronouns - indicate possession or ownership

The car is mine.

Is that pen yours?

The brown cat is hers.

This car is ours.

 

2. adjectives - don't substitute for noun but qualifying a noun

This is my coffee, your coffee is overe there.

His dog is big.

Her apartement is small.

Their sister works here.

 

Possessive adjectives go before the noun and possessive pronouns go after the noun.

 

Examples:

 

This is my tea.

The tea is mine.

 

Is this your house?

Is that house yours?

 

 

REMEMBER

Always repeat the subject.

 

I have a sister.

She  is younger than me.
