Overview of Pronouns

What is a Pronoun?

Pronoun - a word used instead of a Noun.

But why should we use them?

By avoiding the repetition of a noun, we make a sentence short and beautiful.

Have a look at the following sentences:

Sentence without Pronoun: Alka is absent, because Alka is ill.
It sounds odd.

To improve it, we can avoid the repetition of the noun Alka.
Sentence with Pronoun: Alka is absent, because she is ill.
