Pronoun-Antecedent Agreement

Pronoun-Antecedent Agreement

Author: Janice Davis

By the end of this lesson, students will be able to:

  • identify the relationship between a pronoun and its antecedent.
  • verify if a subject and verb agree in number.
  • verify if a pronoun and its antecedent agree in number, case, and form.
  • identify singular indefinite pronouns.

Sometimes words in sentences sound like they agree, but they are actually arguing.  :)   It's important to learn how to tell if a subject and verb are both plural or singular.  Generally, if the verb ends in an "s" it is a singular verb; whereas, when a noun ends in an "s" it is often the plural form.  (Remember, neither of these rules are 100% true.)
