Pronouns

Pronouns are words that replace nouns. He, she, I, myself, yourself, these, who and what are all examples of pronouns.

A pronoun saves us from repeating a noun. Compare:

  • Anthony lives in London. Anthony works in a shop near Anthony’s brother’s house. 
  • Anthony lives in London. He works in a shop near his brother’s house.
    [He and his are pronouns. They replace Anthony and Anthony’s brother’s.]

There are many different types of pronouns in English. Here are some lists, with explanations and examples:
