After completing this course you will be able to:
- Justify why we use reflexive pronouns, e.g. myself/ourselves etc. in sentences where the subject and the object are the same.
- Explain why there are certain sentences where reflexive pronouns are not necessary and we use other words/phrases instead.
- Relate how possessive pronouns mean something which belongs to someone and outline why singular words are often followed by plural words.
- Describe how the words 'own' and 'self' are used in sentences with a similar meaning and how 'both', 'either' and 'neither' refers to or compares two things.
- Relate how the words 'there' and 'it' are used as dummy subjects with the verb 'to be' - to give information about a noun and how 'there' refers to place.
