However, as you have noticed, the phrase “he or she” (and its other forms) can often make your sentences awkward. If this happens, it may be best to review your sentences in order to have plural precursors. As “he or she” is clumsy, you will often see problems like this: NOTE: The plural pronoun replaces male and female names. Explanation: As “singer” is singular, the pronoun must be singular. In this situation, saying “her or her” seems strange, so the best choice would be to revise the sentence to clarify the sex of the singer. However, the following guidelines can help us decide which speaker pronoun matches such neprotectants. In the sentence above, everyone designates the voters. Voters can be counted (1 voter, 2 voters, etc.). Therefore, the plural pronoun is the right speaker for everyone. Explanation: When composite precursors are connected by “and” they are plural and therefore take a plural pronoun. 1. If two or more singular-substantial precursors are bound by and they form a precursor of plural. (1 – 1 – 2) 2.

If two or more nov-pre-precursors of or are connected, select a pronoun reference to agree with the previous CLOSEST TO THE VERB. We call President Lincoln the ANTECEDENT because he is in front of the pronoun that refers to it later. (ante – front) In the second sentence (Susan assigned the task to you and me), both pronouns are the subject of the sentence, so they should be in the case of the object: “Susan assigned the task to you and me.” We don`t talk and we don`t write like that. The Nominus Lincoln is automatically replaced with a pronoun. More naturally, we say the explanation: in situations with “or” or “nor,” the precursor must be the namein closest to the pronoun that is in this case Peterson. As Peterson is plural, the pronoun must be plural. To avoid pronouns and precursor problems, you need to take three steps: by writing, make sure you are using the appropriate pronouns. If a pronoun corresponds to the person and the number of his predecessor, we say that he corresponds to him. Let`s take a few examples: You can look back on the personal pronoun diagram to see which speakers agree with which precursors. On the other hand, if we actually refer to the people who have the group, we look at the plural noun.

In this case, we use a reference plural pronoun. 1. Group substitutions, which are considered individual units, take individual reference pronouns. We have already defined a predecessor as the Nostun (or phrase) that replaces a pronoun. The term “anticipated clarity” simply means that it must be clear who or what the pronoun refers to. In other words, readers should be able to understand the sentence at first reading – not the third, fourth or tenth. On this page, we`ll look at some examples of common errors that can create confusion, as well as ways to correct each sentence. 1. For precursors who are bound by a plural reference pronodem and who always choose.

If sentences become more complicated or whole paragraphs are involved, identifying pronos precursors can be more complicated. However, as long as pronouns and precursors are properly used, you should be able to find the precursor for each pronoun. Read the sentences below and write down the precursor for each pronoun.
