  4. Pronouns !!! Personal Pronouns Antecedent Personal pronouns stand in for nouns. They’re like stuntmen. When nouns feel overworked, they call for pronouns—words like he,it, she, we they, and so on. The noun to which the pronoun refers is called the antecedent.

  5. Squiggly was late. He forgot to set the alarm. The tree fell because it had been attacked by bugs. Grammar girl is happy because she remembered to bring an eraser.

  6. Pronouns are VITAL~~~~~~~~~ Pronouns are vital. Try not using one for an hour, and you’ll see. I use them constantly as you can tell by these sentences. Because pronouns come in different shapes and are used for different reasons some official grammar language is necessary. Ready????? -----” We will speak on this further” (Macbeth I.6)

  11. Pronouns and Their Cases Pronouns are bunched together in three cases. (I do not know why the word “case” is used. Categories would work just as well, but officially they are called cases. Think of each case like a suitcase; it packs all the similar pronouns together.

  12. Pronouns in Their Suitcases

  13. Subjunctive Case The doer of the action; the one who acts She ate fifty hot dogs. (She did the eating, so she’s taking the action.)

  14. Objective Case The receiver of the action; the one who sits back and lets it all happen to her (or him). The judge gave her the prize. (Her received the prize and is the receiver of the action.)

  15. Possessive Case Shows ownership Her dog threw up on my shoes. (Her indicates the dog belongs to a previously mentioned female.)

  20. Pronouns in Their Suitcases

  21. Point of View First Person Second Person Third Limited Third Omniscient

  22. Point of View First Person Tells the story from the point of view of the person who is talking. You’re being told the story by one person, and you’re in that person’s mind. I often wonder what my dog is thinking.

  23. Point of View Second Person Directs the text to you, the reader. It’s usually used in nonfiction, such as these notes. Try not using a pronoun for an hour. See if you can.

  24. Point of View Third Person Observes the story from the outside. The narrator can let you know what is happening in different people’s thoughts and can follow different characters (omniscient) or just one character (limited). Sarah hates cats, so she was surprised to find one in her room. Third Limited Third Omniscient

  25. NOTE: • Author’s write novels in first person or in third – they RARELY use second ;) .

  28. I you me I … is always and only a subject pronoun. you … can stand in for a subject or an object!!! me … is always and only a object pronoun. You threw the beach ball. Squiggly threw me. I threw the beach ball. Squiggly threw you.

  29. NOTE You also fills in for one person or many people (i.e., it’s a singular and a plural pronoun). I say “You should go to Disneyland,” I could be talking to one person or to a group of people. You should be standing in for Squiggly alone, or Squiggle, Aardvark and their families.
