In today’s session as we continue looking at the Eight (8) types of Pronouns. We will now look at the next four (4) ‘Pronouns’.

And they are as follows:

  • Demonstrative Pronoun,
  • Indefinite Pronoun,
  • Reciprocal Pronoun, and
  • Intensive Pronoun

 

  • A Demonstrative Pronoun is a pronoun that points out the particular person, place or thing referred to.

For example: this, that, these, those

                            This is my basket.

                             That is your book and these are mine.

                             Those are your shoes.

  • Indefinite Pronouns do not refer to any particular noun or stand to any person, place or thing.

For example: anyone, anything, anybody, everybody, everything, everyone, someone, somebody, something, no-one, nobody

                             No-one is to be blame for this mess.

  • Reciprocal Pronoun comes from the word reciprocate. To reciprocate means to give back or give in return. A reciprocal pronoun is a pronoun that denotes inter change of the action of the verb.

For example: each other, one another

                            Pray with one another.

Do not fight each other.

We use each other when referring to two (2) people. We use one another when referring to more than two people.

  • An Intensive Pronoun may related to the word intense or emphasize. An intensive pronoun is a pronoun that serves to emphasize it antecedent.

For example: myself, yourself, himself, herself, ourselves, yourselves, themselves

                             I myself don’t like rice.

                              Mana himself ate the potato.

Person Singular Plural
First Myself ourselves
Second Yourself yourselves
Third Himself/herself themselves
  itself  

What we have covered in today’s session would help you teachers and parents to support our students and children in school and at home. This is to enable them to know what a pronoun is, and when they are speaking or writing sentences they would be able to use them correctly.

To conclude boys and girls you have an activity to do on Pronouns base on today’s session :
