Hello! Welcome to lesson four. In this lesson we will learn subject Pronouns in English.So let's start.
What is a subject pronoun?
A subject pronoun is a word that replaces a noun. The word “pronoun” comes from the Latin word “pronomen” which breaks down onto “pro” and “nomen.” They mean “in place of” and “name.”
The benefits of Pronouns is that,they help us avoid repeating names. When you were talking about someone, you would have to keep repeating their name over and over.
We Use subject pronouns instead of nouns. Well what is a noun ?
A noun is a name. Nouns represent people, places, animals, things , ideas and emotions. Nouns can be singular or plural.
for example :
" A dog " - (is singular and means one dog)
"two dogs" - (are plural and means more than one dog)
Singular = means one (1)
Plural = means more than one (2 , 3 or many )
We will learn more about nouns later on.
So subject pronouns have also singular and plural forms. Because, we use them instead of nouns.Look at this picture.
