used to rename or replace other "brandname" nouns.

Antecedents describe the word (or group
of words) that a pronoun refers to, replaces,
or renames. A pronoun has meaning to the reader
or listener only if it has an antecedent-a noun
that the pronoun is meant to replace-and only
if it refers to the antecedent clearly. (back to top)
Principles of the Link Between Pronouns and Their
1. Every pronoun must refer clearly to
one and only one specific noun in the same sentence
or in a preceding sentence.
2. Every pronoun must agree with its antecedent
in terms of number, person, and gender.
