Pronoun Usage

A pronoun is a word used in place of a noun. Usually the pronoun substitutes for the specific noun, called the antecedent. When deciding which pronoun to use in a sentence, say the sentence aloud or in your head several times using each pronoun. Whichever sounds correct will usually be correct. For example, “Bob and ____ will be going.” You might be deciding whether to use I or me. Saying “Bob and me will be going” does not sound as good as “Bob and I will be going”, so the correct pronoun in this case is I.
