See explanation


A pronoun is a word that takes the place of a noun. Pronouns can be subjects of the sentence (I, he, she, it, you, we, they) or express possession (his, her, your, my, mine, yours, its, our, their, ours, theirs).

Proper nouns are specific, capitalized nouns. Like all nouns, they are either people, places, objects, activities, or ideas.

Examples of proper nouns:


George Clooney

New York City


Muslim (can be a proper adjective as well)
