To identify and use nouns and pronouns

 

Nouns

Nouns have an important job - to name things or places, like ‘picture’, ‘dog' or ‘Leroy’.

There are two main types of noun:

Common nouns

These are the names of things (places or objects).

Proper nouns

These are the names of a particular person, place or thing. They always begin with a capital letter.

 

Expanded noun phrases

Expanded noun phrases tell you more about the noun.

For example, ‘the cat’ can be expanded to ‘the cute cat’.

This phrase contains a determiner, an adjective and a noun.

We know ‘the cute cat’ is an expanded noun phrase because it contains:

  • a determiner (the)
  • an adjective (cute)
  • a noun (cat)

 

Pronouns

Pronouns take the place of nouns in a sentence, examples are 'him', 'her' and 'them'.

Pronouns can replace a noun for an individual or a group of people.
