2. What Are Pronouns? - Types, Examples & Definition

What Are Personal Pronouns?

3. What Are Personal Pronouns?

Pronouns are great for making sure debaters don't have to keep repeating the other guy's name over and over again, but they have many other uses too! In fact, pronouns, you could say, make reading readable. In part one, we'll cover personal pronouns and how they're used before moving on to more esoteric varieties.

Action, Linking and Auxiliary Verbs: Definitions, Functions & Examples

9. Types of Sentences: Simple, Compound & Complex

How to Identify the Subject of a Sentence

10. How to Identify the Subject of a Sentence

Don't pass over this lesson! You may think you know how to find subjects and verbs in a sentence, but picking them out can be harder than you think. Identifying subjects and verbs is the first step to unlocking nearly everything else about English composition.

Parallelism: How to Write and Identify Parallel Sentences

11. Parallelism: How to Write and Identify Parallel Sentences

Sentences that aren't parallel sound funny, even if they look perfectly correct at first glance. Learn what makes a sentence parallel, how to revise a sentence to make it parallel, and how to write beautiful, balanced sentences of your own.

Independent & Dependent Clauses: Subordination & Coordination

12. Independent & Dependent Clauses: Subordination & Coordination

This lesson is about independent and dependent clauses, and how they make up a sentence. Dependent clauses, like the name suggests, rely on other elements in a sentence. Independent clauses, on the other hand, can stand alone. Learn more in this lesson.

Punctuation: Using Colons, Semicolons & Periods

16. Punctuation: Using Colons, Semicolons & Periods
