Do you know what a noun in disguise is?
A pronoun is just a noun in disguise!
A noun can be substituted with a pronoun. Pronouns can do all the same things nouns do. Ask your parent or teacher to help you read the list of pronouns below:
Did you know there were so many pronouns? All of these pronouns can be used in the place of nouns and proper nouns. Are you ready to dive into some examples?
Noun: Tanya loves ice cream.
Pronoun: She loves ice cream.
You can use the pronoun "She" instead of using the girl’s name, Tanya. The word "she" replaces the proper noun, "Tanya." She tells you there is one person, and that person is a girl.
Noun: Tim, Bob, Joe, Mark, and Bill are ready to play baseball.
Pronoun: Everyone is ready to play baseball.
Instead of naming everyone on the team, the pronoun "Everyone" focuses the attention onto the whole team.
I read by myself in the library.
There are two pronouns in the sentence you just read. "I" is a pronoun that is used to tell you the boy is talking about himself. The pronoun "myself" also tells you the boy is referring to himself (By the way, what kind of word do you think "himself" is?).
See if you can find the pronoun in the next sentence. Tell your parent or teacher what the pronoun is:
He is ready for school.
The pronoun in the sentence you just read is "He." Instead of saying the boy’s name, the pronoun "he" is used. He tells you that there is one person, and this person is a boy.
