Identifying Nouns and Pronouns

In this post, we are going to learn how to identify nouns and pronouns. You might say that this is very basic, but it is important since nouns and pronouns are usually the subject of the sentence. Identifying the subject can be useful. For example, once you identified the subject, you will now which correct verb to use in the subject-verb agreement.

Nouns are proper names that usually start with a capital letter. Pronouns are substitute for proper names.

He, she, it, they, us, we – are examples of pronouns.

Example: George and Martha are Dennis the Menace’s neighbors. (In bold letters are nouns)

They are Dennis the Menace’s neighbors. (They is a pronoun which is a substitute for George and Martha collectively.)
