Nouns are words that name a person, an object, or an idea. Pronouns are substitutes for nouns to avoid repetition in a sentence. We have four types of pronouns:
- Personal pronouns indicate a person or group. Examples: he, she, they
- Possessive pronouns indicate ownership. Examples: his, hers, theirs
- Relative pronouns introduces dependent clauses in sentences. Examples: who, whoever, that, which, when, where, whose
- Reflexive pronouns refer back to the subject of the sentence. Examples: himself, herself, myself
This infographic shows us how to use reflexive pronouns in detail.
