George loves to eat rice with fish. He is a gentleman.

See, He is using the alternative of ‘George’. Here ‘He’ means ‘George’ also.

Pronoun Definition and Examples– in details

a. Personal pronoun

When we use a pronoun instead of any person or thing is called a personal pronoun.

Personal pronouns examples

I did it.

You can do everything.

They are students.

He is a good boy.

She sings well.

Here I, You, They, He, and She are the personal pronoun.

Types of personal pronouns:

There are three (3) types of personal pronouns. They are-

1. Personal pronoun of the first person

This kind of pronoun is used in the place of first-person. For example: I, we, my, me, our, us, ours, etc.

2. Personal pronoun of the second person

This kind of pronoun is used in the place of the second person. For example- You, yours, your, thou, they, thine, thee, etc.

3. Personal pronoun of the third person

This kind of pronoun is used in the place of the third person. For example – He, she, his, her, they, their, them, etc.

Characteristics of personal pronouns

Personal pronouns change with the change of number, person, and case. For example, I change to we when it is in the plural number. This chart will explain best,

CaseFirst-person Second-person Third-person 
Nominative Singular – I
Plural – We 
Singular – You
Plural- You
Singular – He, She
Plural- They
Objective Singular – Me
Plural – us
Singular- thou, you, thee
Plural- You

Plural- Them
Possessive Singular- My, Mine
Plural- Our, Ours

Real-Life Examples of Personal Pronoun:

We are what we believe we are (Said by – Author CS Lewis ) Conscience is the only incorruptible thing about us. (Said by- Henry Fielding) Yesterday isn’t ours to recovers, but tomorrow is ours to win or lose (Said by -Lyndon Johnson)

b. Interrogative pronoun

He is the teacher we met.

In this line, the noun is ‘teacher’, and we know that we use pronouns as an alternative to nouns. Then the question is where we will use an interrogative pronoun? When we will ask a question that is he the teacher we met? Then we can find the answer. By using Who the teacher is not a noun anymore.

For example :

Who is he?

This ‘who’ is a pronoun so interrogative pronoun is that pronoun by which we ask a question. We use Who, Which, and What as interrogative pronouns.

For example :

Who are you? (nominative case)

Whom do you love? (objective case)

Whose pencil is this? (possessive case)

Uses of who, which, what

a. use of who in a sentence

As subject – Who is he? Who are they?

As object- Who do you want? Whom are you looking for?

b. use of which in a sentence

Singular – Which bottle do you want?

Plural- Which of these bottles do you want?

c. use of what in a sentence

Singular – What will you eat?

Plural- What are themes do you need?

C. Distributive pronoun

Distribute means dividing something to everyone. Distributive pronouns are also like this. Distributive pronouns are: each, either…. or, neither… nor, everyone, everybody.

Basically, The pronoun that separates one person or thing from a population of persons or things is called the distributive pronoun.

For example :

Each of them went there.

Each of the men and women is selected.

Either of the two boys is talented.

The two Sisters went to the town.

There are two flowers, neither is good.

Each boy has said this.

Parts of Speech: nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs

d. Demonstrative pronoun

Words such as these, that, this, those, so, such are the words that are used instead of some noun. These words are called demonstrative pronouns.

For example :

This is my home.

That is your car.

These are bad plates, but those plates are good.

Use of this, these, that, those as pronouns:

See the chart properly, 

Singular Plural
This These

At the end section, we are trying to show a full list of pronouns.

So it is clear that the main pronoun is this and that and the plural forms are these and those.

This man is good.

These men are good.

That car is beautiful.

Those cars are perfect.

B. Such

When such is used as a demonstrative pronoun it indicates the earlier noun. Before such one must use as.

For example :

He was a teacher, and we believed him to be as such.

C. The same

It is sometimes used as a demonstrative pronoun. At that time ‘as’ is used after ‘the same’.

They did the same as we.

Rahim will do the same as Tina.

D. So

It is used after some verbs. They are: say, think, hope, desire, want, demand etc.

For example :

I don’t think so.

People say so.

e. Relative pronoun 

Relative pronouns are used as connectors. For example :

I know the man. He lost the bag.

If I say that I know the man who lost his bag then this will be a relative pronoun. This “who” is a connector of two different lines.

I have lost the book. You gave me the book.

I have lost the book that you gave me. Here that is also a relative pronoun.

The relative pronoun is that pronoun that refers to some noun or pronoun previously mentioned and at the same time, it joins two sentences.

A. Who

It is used only to indicate persons. For example :

This is a man who came to our school.

She is who drew it.
