Noun Pronoun Agreement Activities

Students add basic word suffixes to make names in this interactive lesson. It`s a fun match game on Pronom – the precursor chord! “You” is right. The noun is plural (two people — Mr. Banks and Ms. Cutler), so it requires the plural pronoun “you.” If the subject of the sentence is plural, the pronoun also becomes pluralistic in the sentence. This game tests how much you remember irregular plural names Recently, many academic and popular publications have begun to accept the use of the pronoun “they” as singular pronouns, meaning that the authors “use them” to match individual subjects to avoid gender pronouns. Although the pronoun “she” is only a plural pronoun in some style guides, the APA encourages authors to “use” them as singular or plural pronouns with the specific intention of adopting gender diversity. “She” is right, because it is a unique female pronoun that replaces the only female name “Jane Roberts”. Note that you also need to change “Answer” to “Answers” to have the verb agree with the singular name. The purpose of a pronoun is to take the place or return it to a nostantiv in one sentence. Like subjects and verbs, names and pronouns should match by number within a sentence. It`s time to choose the right pronoun to use in a sentence! According to the APA Style blog, writers should also use the singular “you” when it comes to transgender and non-sex-friendly people (including agenders, genders and other communities) who use the singular “them” as their pronoun (paragraph 1). Pronouns demand small words.

To be correct, they must be in agreement with the Nostun or the pronoun to which they refer, the Sovin. A pronoun must agree in numbers, in the generation (she, him or her) and personally (me, you, them, them). That`s a lot to remember for a young writer. The following worksheets are intended to help this young person meet the requirements of these small pronouns. You can view or download any one by clicking on the title. They are free for use at home or in class. Learners identify the parts of the language in a particular order until each word is labeled in a sentence. In a variety of exercises, learners practice finding verbs, preposition phrases, themes, nouns, pronouns, adjectives, adverbs and conjunctions.
