REAL LIFE EXAMPLE

When we talk to people or about them we do not always use their names but use terms like he, she, it, or I. For example He is going. Here, he is a pronoun. It is an important part of language.  

LERNING OBJECTIVES

This Lesson will help you to- ?  

  • learn about pronouns. ?
  • use pronouns in place of nouns  

Definition

Pronouns are words that are used in place of naming words or nouns. Every time we cannot use a name, for example; (1) King George was a crept king. King George loved to travel. King George was always happy...... If we keep using the name again and again it does not sound so good.

To make it sound good. We use pronouns. Like here, in place of writing King George again and again we should have written King George was a great king. He loved to travel. He was always happy. Since from the first sentence we had come to know that we are talking about King George so we need not use the name again and again we can use he instead of his name.

Lets take a few more examples

Sheela is n good aHSheela Studies every day. Sheela finishes her homework on time. In the above example we are talking of a girl named

Sheela. It became clear that sheela is being talked about from the first sentence. Mow we can use she in the place of using her name again and again. Let's see again.

Sheela is a good girl. She studies every day. She finishes her Homework on time. It sounds better, doesn't it? We used she in place of he here as we use He for a man. Boy. Uncle, or any other male and she for a girl, lady, mom, aunty or any other woman. It for any other thing like animal, place or thing.

 

 

A Poem for pronouns

I am I, you are you

he is he

he is a boy

she is a girl.

He can never be girl. She can never be a boy.

He and he, she and she or he and He and she will make a They.

All other thing are it.

I am not it

she is not it

He is also not it.

All animals are it.  

Remember

It is used for animals and nonliving things.

Think

Before choosing any option, try to read the sentence and if it does not sound ?ok? to you it is not correct.  

Quick concept review     

In the previous chapter we learnt that nouns are naming words. For example, Apple. Orange or Dog. But we cannot use names again and again. Let us   study what we can use instead of using names again and again.                                                        

Sarita is o good girl. Sarita Studies every day.  

Sarita finishes her homework on time. In the above example we are talking of a girl named               

Sarita. It became clear that Sarita is being talked about from the first sentence. Now we can use shein place of using her name again and again. Let?s see again. Sarita is a good girl. She studies every day. She finishes her homework on time. It sounds better doesn?t it! We used her in place of her name.   Here as we use Him for man. Boy.  Uncle, or any other male. She for girl, lady, mom. Aunty or other woman. It for any other thing like animal, place or thing.  

Possessiveness                

Her, His, My are the words that tell us to whom does a particular thing belong to. For Example. Varsha plays with her toys. Here her shows possessiveness. Ram has packed his bag. Here his shows possessiveness. I have completed my homework. Here my shows possessiveness.
