Common errors with pronouns

Posted by Manjusha Filed in English Grammar

Correct the following sentences.

One when used in a sentence should be used throughout. Note that in American English, the pronouns he, him and his can be used later in a sentence to refer back to one. This is not possible in British English.

Here the sentence 'I think so' means 'I think that he is coming.' So can be used after verbs like say, tell and think instead of repeating information in a that-clause.

To talk about having a good time, we normally say enjoy myself / yourself / himself etc.

One subject or object in a relative clause is enough. For example, in the clause 'the boy he will get the prize' there are two subjects - the boy and he. One of these should be removed.
