Using Pronouns

playing basketball

A pronoun is a word that replaces a noun.

Maggie took the shot.

She took it.

       (The pronoun she refers to one girl—Maggie. The pronoun it refers to one thing—shot.)

The word a pronoun refers to is its antecendent.

A singular pronoun stands for a singular word, and a plural pronoun for a plural word.
