PRONOUNS

Nouns are names of people, places or things.


Common nouns are words like sister, city, car.


Proper nouns are names like Susan, Los Angeles, Ford. We start all proper nouns with a capital letter (S LA F).


PRONOUNS are words that we use when we don't say the name. There are four main kinds of pronouns: Subject Pronouns, Object Pronouns, Possessive Pronouns and Reflexive Pronouns. Possessive Adjectives aren't pronouns, but we study them with pronouns.


Subject Pronouns

I, you, he, she, it, we, they


Object Pronouns

me, you, him, her, it, us, them


Possessive Adjectives

my, your, his, her, its, our, their


Possessive Pronouns

Adjectives


Adjectives are words that describe nouns.


                                     the old car or the new car

                                     a nice person

                                     a beautiful flower


The adjectives usually go before the noun, except when we say, "the car is old or the car is new, that person is nice, the flower is beautiful," etc.


Comparative and Superlative Forms of Adjectives


The brown car is older than the white car.

El auto de color cafe es mas viejo que el auto blanco.

It is the oldest car on this street.

Es el auto mas viejo de esta calle.

Our teacher is nicer than the other teachers.

Nuestro maestro es mas simpatico que los otros maestros.

He is the nicest person I know.

El es la persona mas simpatica que yo conozco.


old

oldest (superlative)


nice

nicer (comparative)

nicest (superlative)


THE RULE: short words, one-syllable words, add -er in the comparative form and -est in the superlative form.


beautiful

more beautiful (comparative)

the most beautiful (superlative)


interesting

more interesting (comparative)

the most interesting (superlative)


THE RULE: long words, three syllables or more,

use more and most to make the comparative

and the superlative.


Two-syllable words sometimes use -er and -est and sometimes they use more and most. The first method is more common.


Two-syllable words that end in y do this:


pretty                       prettier                      prettiest
