Phrase of the Day

Adjectives are words that modify nouns. They are often called “describing words” because they give us further details about a noun, such as what it looks like (the white horse), how many there are (the three boys) or which one it is (the last house). Adjectives do not modify verbs or other adjectives.Most often, adjectives are easy to identify in a sentence because they fall right before the nouns they modify.

The old clock hung upon the wall.
A white horse galloped across the lush, green grass.
Have you met our three handsome boys?
Ours is the last house on the street.
In these sentences, old, white, lush, green, three, handsome, and last are all adjectives; they give us a more detailed description of the nouns they modify. An adjective might answer the mental questions, “What kind is it?” (as with an old clock, a white horse, the lush grass, the green grass, or the handsome boys), “How many are there?” (as with the three boys), or “Which one is it?” (as with the last house). Adjectives that answer the first question are descriptive adjectives. Those that answer the other two questions are limiting adjectives—they restrict or quantify a noun rather than describing it.

The five ladies go to Las Vegas every year.
Those flowers must go on that table.
She gave the best piece to her mother.
The examples above use the limiting adjectives five (how many ladies?), every (which year/s?), those (which flowers?), that (which table?), best (which piece?) and her (whose mother?). Technically, definite articles (the) and indefinite articles (a/an) also function as limiting adjectives.

Predicate Adjectives
Although many adjectives fall before the nouns they modify, as in the examples above, those used in sentences or clauses with linking verbs fall after the nouns they modify. Linking verbs describe a state of being rather than an action; the most common linking verb is to be, and others include sense verbs like appear, seem, look, smell, sound, and taste.

Cynthia is fatigued .
Those muffins look delicious .
The sunrise seemed golden .
Do you think this spaghetti sauce tastes spicy ?
With linking verbs, adjectives like fatigued, delicious, golden, and spicy all fall after the nouns they modify (Cynthia, muffins, sunrise, spaghetti sauce).

You use pronouns every day. In fact, even if you don’t know what pronouns are, you use them—and in this sentence alone, we’ve now used pronouns four times.

Pronouns are the words you substitute for other nouns when your reader or listener already knows which nouns you’re referring to. For example, you might say, “I have a dog. He’s brown and white.” There’s no need to clarify that you’re describing your dog in the second sentence because you already mentioned him in the first. But following up “I have a dog” with “brown and white” is grammatically incorrect . . . so with the pronoun “he’s,” you turn the phrase “brown and white” into a full sentence: He’s brown and white. Pronouns do a whole lot more than turn phrases into sentences. They provide context, make your sentences’ meanings clearer, and shape how we perceive people and things. Read on to learn about the different ways we use pronouns and how to use them to construct sentences. There’s a lot to understand about pronouns, and even if you already understand a lot of it subliminally, reading a comprehensive guide to pronouns’ uses and purposes (complete with examples!) can strengthen your grasp of English grammar and make you a stronger writer.

What is a pronoun?
Pronouns are short words we swap in for other nouns to make our writing and speech faster and more varied. They’re words like:

They
I
You
Who
Themselves
Each other
Pronouns make up a small subcategory of nouns. The distinguishing characteristic of pronouns is that they can be substituted for other nouns. For instance, if you’re telling a story about your sister Sarah, the story will begin to sound repetitive if you keep repeating “Sarah” over and over again. For example:

Sarah has always loved fashion. Sarah announced that Sarah wants to go to fashion school.
You could try to mix it up by sometimes referring to Sarah as “my sister,” but then it sounds like you’re referring to two different people:

Sarah has always loved fashion. My sister announced that Sarah wants to go to fashion school.
Instead, you can use the pronouns she and her to refer to Sarah:

Sarah has always loved fashion. She announced that she wants to go to fashion school.
Pronouns can replace both proper and common nouns. Certain pronouns have specific rules about when they can be used, such as how it should never be used to refer to a human being. We explain all of the different types and their associated rules below.

Personal pronouns
When you think of pronouns, you most likely think of personal pronouns. Personal pronouns are pronouns that refer to specific individuals and groups. Personal pronouns include:

I/me
She/her
He/him
They/them
We/us
You
Here are a few examples of personal pronouns in italics, with the nouns they’re referring to bolded:

The new student will arrive today. They will need a seating assignment and a name tag.
My family loves nachos. We make them every Friday for movie night.
In the second example sentence, notice that nachos (a noun) and them (a pronoun) aren’t emphasized. That’s because in this sentence, them isn’t a personal pronoun because it isn’t replacing a proper noun, but rather we is.

Antecedents
Remember how we mentioned that in order to use a pronoun, you need to introduce the noun first? That noun has a name: an antecedent.

Antecedents are necessary because pronouns are versatile. Think about it—“it” can refer to a bike, a tree, a car, or a city, and we just used it to refer to something else entirely: pronouns’ versatility. Take a look at these examples to see how antecedents and pronouns work together:

My family tests my patience, but I love them.
The sign was too far away for Jorge to read it.
Danita said she is almost finished with the application.
Antecedents aren’t necessary when the reader/listener knows who or what you’re discussing. Generally, you don’t need an antecedent for pronouns like I, you, we, our, and me. But because there are no absolutes in grammar, sometimes you do need an antecedent in this kind of situation—like when you’re giving a speech where you introduce yourself and your credentials before discussing your achievements.

There are also circumstances where you might not introduce the noun first and instead reveal it after using only pronouns to refer to your subject. You might do this for dramatic or poetic effect in a piece of creative writing.

Relative pronouns
Relative pronouns are another class of pronouns. They connect relative clauses to independent clauses. Often, they introduce additional information about something mentioned in the sentence. Relative pronouns include these words:

that
what
which
who
whom
Traditionally, who refers to people, and which and that refer to animals or things. Here are a few examples of relative pronouns at work:

The woman who called earlier didn’t leave a message.
All the dogs that got adopted today will be loved.
My car, which is nearly twenty years old, still runs well.
Who vs. whom—subject and object pronouns
Knowing when to use who and when to use whom trips a lot of writers up. The difference is actually pretty simple: Who is for the subject of a sentence, and whom is for the object of a verb or preposition. Here’s a quick example:

Who mailed this package?
To whom was this package sent?
See the difference? Who is a subject pronoun. It’s in the same category as I, he, she, they, and we. Whom is an object pronoun, which puts it in the same category as me, him, her, them, and us. An easy way to determine whether you should use who or whom in a sentence is to answer the sentence’s question by substituting another pronoun. With the new pronoun in place, determine if the sentence still makes sense. For example:

He mailed this package.
The package was sent to him.
Figuring out when to use whom can be more difficult than knowing when to use who because it typically comes before the sentence’s verb—notice how the example object pronoun sentence changed more dramatically than the subject pronoun sentence.

Demonstrative pronouns
That, this, these, and those are demonstrative pronouns. They take the place of a noun or noun phrase that has already been mentioned or is clear through context, either in written or verbal communication.

This is used for singular items that are nearby. These is used for multiple items that are nearby. The distance can be physical or metaphorical. Take a look at these examples:

Here is a letter with no return address. Who could have sent this?
What a fantastic idea! This is the best thing I’ve heard all day.
If you think gardenias smell nice, try smelling these.
That is used for singular items that are far away. Those is used for multiple items that are far away. Again, the distance can be physical or metaphorical. Here are a few examples of these pronouns in action:

A house like that would be a nice place to live.
Some new flavors of soda came in last week. Why don’t you try some of those?
Those aren’t swans, they’re geese.
Indefinite pronouns
Indefinite pronouns are used when you need to refer to a person or thing that doesn’t need to be specifically identified. Some common indefinite pronouns are one, other, none, some, anybody, everybody, and no one.

Here are a few examples of indefinite pronouns in sentences:

Everybody was late to work because of the traffic jam.
It matters more to some than others.
Nobody knows the trouble I’ve seen.
When indefinite pronouns function as subjects of a sentence or clause, they usually take singular verbs.

Reflexive pronouns
Reflexive pronouns end in -self or -selves:

Myself
Yourself
Himself
Herself
Itself
Oneself
Ourselves
Yourselves
Themselves
Use a reflexive pronoun when both the subject and object of a verb refer to the same person or thing. Here are a few examples:

She checked herself out of the hotel thirty minutes before check-out time.
Take care of yourselves.
Using myself when you mean me is a common mistake writers and speakers make. Reflexive pronouns are only correct when the subject and object of a sentence are the same.

Intensive pronouns
Intensive pronouns look the same as reflexive pronouns, but their purpose is different. Intensive pronouns add emphasis. Conceptualizing the difference between them and reflexive pronouns can be challenging because the emphasis isn’t always obvious. Take a look at these examples of intensive pronouns and examine how they’re different from the examples in the previous section:

I told them I could do it myself.
We asked ourselves, is this business really worth saving?
If you can remove a pronoun from a sentence and it loses emphasis but its meaning stays the same, it’s most likely an intensive pronoun. Compare these two sentences:

I built this house.
I built this house myself.
See how the second one emphasizes that the builder had no outside help? Intensive pronouns can help you express pride, shock, disbelief, credulousness (or incredulousness), or any other strong emotion. Here are a few more examples:

They hiked the entire Appalachian Trail themselves?
Did you, yourself, see Loretta spill the coffee?
Possessive pronouns
Possessive pronouns are pronouns that show possession. They include the following:

My
Your
Our
Their
His
Her
Its
These can also be called possessive adjectives if they modify a noun in a sentence. Take a look at these examples of possessive adjectives in action:

I crashed my bike into a telephone pole.
Your house is always decorated so nicely.
This category also includes independent versions of possessive pronouns. These include:

Mine
Yours
Ours
His
Hers
Theirs
Its
When you use an independent possessive pronoun, you drop the noun it’s referring to. Here are a few examples:

She forgot her jacket, so I gave her mine.
I had no idea whose bid won the auction, then my cousins told me theirs did.
Interrogative pronouns
Interrogative pronouns are used in questions. The interrogative pronouns are who, what, which, and whose. Here are a few examples of interrogative pronouns at play:

Who wants a bag of jelly beans?
What is your name?
Which movie do you want to watch?
Whose jacket is this?
Reciprocal pronouns
There are only two reciprocal pronouns:

Each other
One another
These pronouns refer to two or more people who are both the subject of the sentence. Take a look at these examples:

Javier and Priya, the two top salespeople on our team, are competing with each other for Salesperson of the Year.
All my siblings are blaming one another for letting the boa constrictor out last Thanksgiving.
Distributive pronouns
Distributive pronouns refer to people, animals, and objects as individuals within larger groups. They enable you to single out individuals while acknowledging that they’re part of a larger group. Distributive pronouns include the following:

Either
Each
Neither
Any
None
Here are a few examples of distributive pronouns in sentences:

All of my friends entered the costume contest and none of them won.
Cookies and muffins are available for dessert. Neither is appealing to me.

What is a noun?
A noun is a word that names something, such as a person, place, thing, or idea. In a sentence, nouns can play the role of subject, direct object, indirect object, subject complement, object complement, appositive, or adjective.

Types of nouns
Nouns form a large proportion of English vocabulary and they come in a wide variety of types. Nouns can name a person:

Albert Einstein
the president
my mother
a girl
Nouns can also name a place:

Mount Vesuvius
Disneyland
my bedroom
Nouns can also name things, although sometimes they might be intangible things, such as concepts, activities, or processes. Some might even be hypothetical or imaginary things.

shoe
faucet
freedom
The Elder Wand
basketball
Proper nouns vs. common nouns
One important distinction to be made is whether a noun is a proper noun or a common noun. A proper noun is a specific name of a person, place, or thing, and is always capitalized.

Does Tina have much homework to do this evening?
Tina is the name of a specific person.

I would like to visit Old Faithful.
Old Faithful is the specific name of a geological phenomenon.

The opposite of a proper noun is a common noun, sometimes known as a generic noun. A common noun is the generic name of an item in a class or group and is not capitalized unless appearing at the beginning of a sentence or in a title.

The girl crossed the river.
Girl is a common noun; we do not learn the identity of the girl by reading this sentence, though we know the action she takes. River is also a common noun in this sentence.

Types of common nouns
Common or generic nouns can be broken down into three subtypes: concrete nouns, abstract nouns, and collective nouns. A concrete noun is something that is perceived by the senses; something that is physical or real.

I heard the doorbell.
My keyboard is sticky.
Doorbell and keyboard are real things that can be sensed.

Conversely, an abstract noun is something that cannot be perceived by the senses.

We can’t imagine the courage it took to do that.
Courage is an abstract noun. Courage can’t be seen, heard, or sensed in any other way, but we know it exists.

A collective noun denotes a group or collection of people or things.

That pack of lies is disgraceful.
Pack of lies as used here is a collective noun. Collective nouns take a singular verb as if they are one entity – in this case, the singular verb is.

A pride of lions roamed the savanna.
Pride of lions is also a collective noun.

Nouns as subjects
Every sentence must have a subject, and that subject will always be a noun. The subject of a sentence is the person, place, or thing that is doing or being the verb in that sentence.

Maria is happy.
Maria is the subject of this sentence and the corresponding verb is a form of to be (is).

Nouns as objects
Nouns can also be objects of a verb in a sentence. An object can be either a direct object (a noun that receives the action performed by the subject) or an indirect object (a noun that is the recipient of a direct object).

Give the books to her.
Books is a direct object (what is being given) and her is the indirect object (who the books are being given to).

Nouns as subject and object complements
Another type of noun use is called a subject complement. In this example, the noun teacher is used as a subject complement.

Mary is a teacher.
Subject complements normally follow linking verbs like to be, become, or seem. A teacher is what Mary is.

A related usage of nouns is called an object complement.

I now pronounce you husband and wife.
Husband and wife are nouns used as object complements in this sentence. Verbs that denote making, naming, or creating are often followed by object complements.

Appositive nouns and nouns as modifiers
An appositive noun is a noun that immediately follows another noun in order to further define or identify it.

My brother, Michael, is six years old.
Michael is an appositive here, further identifying the subject of the sentence, my brother.

Sometimes, nouns can be used adjectivally as well.

He is a speed demon.
Speed is a normally a noun, but here it is acting as an adjective to modify demon.

Plural nouns
Plural nouns, unlike collective nouns, require plural verbs. Many English plural nouns can be formed by adding -s or -es to the singular form, although there are many exceptions.

cat—cats
These two cats are both black.
Note the plural verb are.

tax—taxes
house—houses
Countable nouns vs. uncountable nouns
Countable nouns are nouns which can be counted, even if the number might be extraordinarily high (like counting all the people in the world). Countable nouns can be used with a/an, the, some, any, a few, and many.

Here is a cat.
Cat is singular and—obviously—countable.

Here are a few cats.
Here are some cats.
Uncountable nouns are nouns that come in a state or quantity which is impossible to count; liquids are uncountable, as are things that act like liquids (sand, air). They are always considered to be singular, and can be used with some, any, a little, and much.

An I.Q. test measures intelligence.
Intelligence is an uncountable noun.

Students don’t seem to have much homework these days.
This example refers to an unspecified, unquantifiable amount of homework, so homework is an uncountable noun.

Possessive nouns
Possessive nouns are nouns which possess something; i.e., they have something. You can identify a possessive noun by the apostrophe; most nouns show the possessive with an apostrophe and an s.

The cat’s toy was missing.
The cat possesses the toy, and we denote this by use of ‑’s at the end of cat.

When a singular noun ends in the letter s or z, the same format often applies. This is a matter of style, however, and some style guides suggest leaving off the extra s.

I have been invited to the boss’s house for dinner.
Mrs. Sanchez’s coat is still hanging on the back of her chair.
Plural nouns ending in s take only an apostrophe to form a possessive.

My nieces’ prom dresses were exquisite.
Nouns FAQs
What are nouns?

Nouns refer to a person, place, thing, or idea. They make up the subjects, direct objects, and indirect objects in a sentence, along with other roles.

What are examples of nouns?

Nouns can be living things (Keanu Reeves or cat), places (beach or Detroit), things (ruler or PlayStation 5), or ideas (nihilism or the theory of evolution).

What are the different types of nouns?

Common nouns refer to general things (like parks), and proper nouns refer to a specific thing (like Yellowstone National Park). Nouns can also be plural or singular, depending on how many there are, and countable or uncountable, depending on how their plural form is used.

How do you identify a noun in a sentence?

Nouns usually have articles (the, a, or an) before them in a sentence, but not always. Sometimes you’ll see adjectives or words like “some” or “this” before nouns. Aside from the first word in a sentence, if a word is capitalized then it’s a noun, such as a person’s name.

Mayroong 2 ways to take UKVI/IElTS eto ay ang Computer Based at ang Conventional na Paper Base Exam, gawin nating simple kung anu ang pipiliin mo dahil malaking factor ang type ng exam na gagamitin mo.

Paper Base Exam: Kung mejo hirap ka gumamit ng keyboard at mouse sa computer in terms ng pag tytype in words, Paper base ang mas mainap na kunin mong exam.

Computer Base Exam: Kung mejo bihasa ka sa pagtytype sa keyboard at ok sa pag-gamit ng mouse cursor eto ang pinaka convenient na gamitin, Never ko sinabe na magaling sa computer dahil magkaiba ang laro sa computer at pagtytype sa keyboard. There is a so called words per minute average 100-140 per minute.

REMEMBER: You will have to type 250 + 150 words sa writing exam at yung Listening, and Reading kailangan mong mag click at type ng answers. Kaya napakahalaga kung anung type ng exam ang kukunin mo. Difficulty wise parehas lang walang pinagkaiba mejo challenging talaga kapag di ka maalam sa keyboard at mouse at kumuha ka ng computer base na exam. Goodbye 12k

You can take both IELTS Academic and IELTS General Training on paper. The contents, test part times, question types, scoring and results of the paper-based IELTS test are the exact same as the computer-delivered IELTS test.

Your test day experience on the other hand is a little different. You will complete the Reading, Listening, and Writing parts on paper, and the Speaking part face-to-face with a qualified IELTS examiner. Before each part of the test, test day staff will hand you booklets and answer sheets and collect them at the end of each test part.

You can use a pen or HB-pencil to complete your Writing test, but you must use a HB-pencil to write your Listening and Reading answers on the answer sheet.

In the paper-based IELTS test, the Writing, Reading, and Listening tests are all completed on the same day with no breaks between each test. The Speaking test is completed in a face-to-face interview with an IELTS examiner, and this can be done one week before or after your test date.
