Subject and Object Pronouns
A pronoun is a word that can replace nouns or a groups of nouns. The antecedent is the noun or nouns to which the pronoun refers. For example: The king said he was hungry. "He" is the pronoun, and "king" is the antecedent. Pronouns may be singular or plural. If the antecedent is plural, then the pronoun that refers to it is plural. For example: The boys say they are ready. "Boys" is plural, so the pronoun that refers to it must also be plural (they).
