His famous mom still struggles with a pronoun for him, he tells Jacob Bernstein in an interview.
The pronoun is deliberate: the Sims was one of the first games to be played by women in significant numbers.
He asks, “What magic is there in the pronoun ‘my,’ that should justify us in overturning the decisions of impartial truth?”
He placed particular emphasis on the pronoun when he spoke the title aloud.
Oh, the heaven and hell wrought by the casual use of a pronoun.
The use of the pronoun, the disuse of the grammar pulled him up short.
The antecedent of a pronoun is the noun which goes before it, and for which the pronoun stands.
He whispered the pronoun so softly that it sounded like a sigh.
In grammar it is a pronoun of the first person and singular number.
The pronoun is emphatic: it means to say, His foolhardiness is My doing and cannot go beyond My will: thou art safe.
A word that takes the place of a noun. She, herself, it, and this are examples of pronouns. If we substituted pronouns for the nouns in the sentence “Please give the present to Karen,” it would read “Please give it to her.”
