English Pronoun Worksheet 3 for Class 2 Kids
Pronouns are defined as words that can be used as a ‘placeholder’ for a noun, that is we can use pronouns in place of a noun. Pronouns are traditionally a part of speech in grammar, but many modern linguists call it a type of noun. In English, pronouns are words such as me, she, any, his, them, herself, each other, it, what.
They are utilized so that we don’t have to repeat nouns again and again in our writing. Our writing and speech is much smoother when we use pronouns.
These are often used to take the place of a noun, to avoid repetition of the noun. This means that the two words need to agree in number, gender, and case, or the sentence won’t make sense!
