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.

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

Example (Singular):
Without a pronoun:

The train was late, the train had been delayed. (Sounds horrid, doesn’t it?)

With a pronoun:
The train was late, it had been delayed. (Much better!)
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. (Still sounds horrid, doesn’t it?)

With a pronoun:
The trains were late, they had been delayed. (Much better!)
In this example the trains are plural, therefore the pronoun must be plural also – they.
