Why Are Pronouns Important?

We know what pronouns are, but why talk about them? Why learn about what they are?

Pronouns are an essential part of language. We add them to our sentences so instinctually, reading a passage without them is rather annoying. As earlier discussed, pronouns are used in the place of nouns in instances where the noun has already been stated (for example: “Gary moved his book.” In this example, “his” is the pronoun used in place of “Gary,” an already stated noun).

What makes pronouns even more important than they already are, is how we use them to refer to people. For most, being referred to as “he” or as “she,” corresponding to their biological sex, is what makes them comfortable. However, individuals on the gender spectrum may choose to change their pronouns, and this change may be to a neutral pronoun. Learning about the different pronouns and how pronouns work overall can be extremely beneficial when referring to those around you.
