- A pronoun in for a noun stands;
- For speech, which good style demands:
- Instead of noun or name,
- Use a pronoun just the same,
- For good style a pronoun demands.
“Pronoun” is from the Latin, “pronomen,” “pro-,” meaning, “for, fore,” and, “nomen,” meaning, “noun.”
A pronoun “stands in” for a noun. Rather than repeating the name of a thing over and over, a prounoun is used. While the name of a person or thing may be pleasant enough, to repeat it over and over can build boredem.
