Pronouns are the generic words that are 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.
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.
