In this lesson, our instructor Rebekah Hendershot goes through an introduction on pronouns. She starts by discussing what a pronouns is. Then, she explains personal pronouns, possessive pronouns, reflexive pronouns, demonstrative pronouns, indefinite pronouns and interrogative pronouns.
Reflexive pronouns indicate that the subject of the verb also receives the action.
Relative pronouns introduce dependent clauses.
Demonstrative pronouns “point” to specific people, places, and things.
Indefinite pronouns stand in for non-specific people, places, and things.
Interrogative pronouns introduce questions.
Pronouns do the job of nouns; adjectives modify nouns. If you’re not sure about a word and it’s followed by a noun, it’s an adjective; if it’s not, it’s a pronoun.
