Editor’s Corner: Pronouns and Rufus Xavier

Good morning! It’s time to dive into the final part of speech: pronouns!

First, let’s start with a quick definition. A pronoun is a word that takes the place of a noun. For example, without pronouns we have this mess: “Donnie wondered where Marie was, even though Marie told Donnie that Marie was going shopping.” With the use of pronouns, we have something much smoother: “Donnie wondered where Marie was, even though she told him that she was going shopping.”

There are four subclasses of pronouns that we will discuss this week:

· Personal

· Reflexive

· Indefinite

· Demonstrative

The list of personal pronouns is divided into three types: first-, second-, and third-person. Tomorrow I will provide you with the lists and brief descriptions of personal pronouns. Until then, here is Schoolhouse Rock’s interpretation of the helpful pronoun: Rufus Xavier Sarsaparilla.
