PRONOUN




Divisions of Grammar Definitions - Etymology.

A pronoun is a word used in place of a noun; as, "John gave his pen to
James and he lent it to Jane to write her copy with it." Without
the pronouns we would have to write this sentence,--"John gave John's pen
to James and James lent the pen to Jane to write Jane's copy with the
pen."

There are three kinds of pronouns--Personal, Relative and Adjective
Pronouns.

Personal Pronouns are so called because they are used instead of the
names of persons, places and things. The Personal Pronouns are I,
Thou, He, She, and It, with their plurals, We, Ye or You
and They.

I is the pronoun of the first person because it represents the person
speaking.

Thou is the pronoun of the second person because it represents the
person spoken to.

He, She, It are the pronouns of the third person because they
represent the persons or things of whom we are speaking.

Like nouns, the Personal Pronouns have number, gender and case. The
gender of the first and second person is obvious, as they represent the
person or persons speaking and those who are addressed. The personal
pronouns are thus declined:


First Person.
M. or F.

Sing. Plural.
N. I We
P. Mine Ours
O. Me Us


Second Person.
M. or F.

Sing. Plural.
N. Thou You
P. Thine Yours
O. Thee You


Third Person.





Next: M.

Previous: ADJECTIVE
