A pronoun is a word used to represent (or substitute for) a noun. Some indeterminate pronouns (for example. B all, most, none, some) can be either singular or plural. Normally, these pronouns are followed by a prepositional sentence containing the name to which they relate. To find out if the indeterminate pronoun is the precursor of the singular or plural, look at the noun in the expression: the pronoun here refers to President Lincoln. President Lincoln is the ANTECEDENT for the pronoun. 1. Group names considered as individual units shall adopt singular reference pronouns. In most cases, you don`t need to discuss whether you need the singulate or plural form. Spoken English that you have heard repeatedly will help you make the right choice of pronoun if you are writing.
