1. The pronoun is a part of speech which points out objects and their qualities without naming them. A pronoun usually refers to something earlier in the text (its antecedent): When Sarah was fixing the car, she cut her hand. (Sarahis a noun.Sheis a pronoun that refers to the antecedent, Sarah.)

2.A pronoun REFERS BACK to a noun or TAKES THE PLACE OF that noun, that is why special attention should be paid to the use of the correct pronoun so that the reader clearly understands which noun our pronoun is referring to.

Pronouns should:

· refer clearly to a specific noun.

Not: Although the motorcycle hit the tree, it was not damaged. (Is "it" the motorcycle or the tree?)

Not: Vacation is coming soon, which is nice. (What is nice, the vacation or the fact that it is coming soon?)

Not: If you put this sheet in your notebook, you can refer to it. (What does "it" refer to, the sheet or your notebook?)

· agree in number;

If the pronoun takes the place of a singular noun, we use a singular pronoun: If a student parks a car on campus, he has to buy a parking sticker. (Not: If a student parks a car on campus, they have to buy a parking sticker.)

· agree in person;

If we are writing in the "third person" (he, she, it, they), we mustn’t switch to the "second person" (you) or "first person" (I): When a person comes to class, he should have his homework ready. (Not: When a person comes to class, you should have your homework ready.)

3.Pronouns can be divided into the following groups: personal, demonstrative, possessive, reflexive, reciprocal, interrogative, relative, defining, indefinite, and negative.

2) In the original version of "Cinderella," for example, after the marriage between she and the prince, Cinderella has her step-sisters placed in spiked coffins and dragged around the city behind the wedding procession.

3) Similarly, in the authentic version of "Little Red Riding Hood" at the end of the story, the wolf attacks and kills the little girl whom was visiting her grandmother.

4) Both her and her grandmother lose their lives.

5) Some nineteenth-century artists were offended by this violence and refused to illustrate the tale; thus, it was them, not the publisher, who believed that a story for children should have a happier ending.

6) One illustrator, to whom modern versions of the tale are indebted, changed the ending by introducing a woodcutter whose appearance saved Red Riding Hood – and the tale.



1.The personal pronouns are: I, he, she, it, we, you, they. The personal pronouns have the categories of person, case, number, and gender (the 3rd person singular).

The personal pronouns in the nominative case are used as the subject in the sentence and are called subject pronouns (I, you, he, she, it, we, they): We are going there later..

2.The personal pronouns in the objective case can be used as the direct or indirect object of a verb. They are called object pronouns (me, you, him, her, it, us, them): John showed him the book. Did you give it to them?

Object pronouns are used rather than subject pronouns after the verb be: Who is it?’ – ‘It’s me’.

3. It can be used as an impersonal subject in general statements that refer to the time, the date, or the weather: ‘What time is it?’ – ‘It is half past three.’ It is January 19th. It is rainy and cold today.

It refers to a person when we are identifying him or her: ‘Is that our waiter?’ – ‘No, it isn’t.’ (Not ‘No, he isn’t.’)
