Prounouns and Antecedents


Pronouns are words that take the place of nouns or groups of nouns.

Antecendents are the nouns to which the pronouns refer. 

Like nouns, pronouns have singular and plural forms. 

A singular pronoun refers to a singular noun, and a plural pronoun refers to a plural noun or multiple singular nouns.
