Q: Identify the sentence using the indicated pronoun correctly. a reciprocal pronoun We were laughing at one another. We were laughing at ourselves.
A: Definition and Examples of Personal Pronouns Personal pronouns function as noun equivalents within the structure of a sentence (subject, direct object, indirect object, subject complement, object of a preposition). [ [ Either singular or plural, they distinguish between the individual speaking (first person?I, me, we, us), the individual spoken to (second person?you), and the individual
spoken about (third person?he, she, it, her, him, they, them). Some examples: * After he caught the football, Tom threw it to Frank. * Frank shouted, ?I?ve got it,? then missed it completely. * Tom said, ?You can?t catch worth a hoot.? * Tom and Frank have been friends since they were in high school. Note: Personal pronouns can also be possessive, meaning they show ownership. These include, but are not limited to, such words as ?his, hers, ours, yours,? etc. Some examples: # Tom said the Atlanta Falcons was his choice for the Super Bowl. # Sue asked, ?Did you forget our anniversary?again?? Definition and Examples of the Other Six Pronouns In addition to personal pronouns, there are six other types in the English language: Demonstrative: These identify or point to specific individuals or things and serve as the subjects of verbs. There are four demonstrative pronouns: ?this, that, these? and ?those.? Some examples: * Tom said, ?This is my box of Girl Scout Cookies.? * Tom said, ?These are my cookies, so don?t let anyone else eat one.? * Sue said, ?That is a ridiculous demand, and you?re being selfish.? * Those were Tom?s cookies, but Sue gave them to the dog. Note: The same four words can also act as demonstrate adjectives, but when acting in that role, they precede nouns, for example, ?This box of cookies is Tom?s.? Indefinite: These do not indicate specific individuals or things, and there are quite a few indefinite pronouns, including but not limited to words like ?anybody, something, anything, someone, none, each, more, most,? etc. ] ]
