Pronouns are words we use in the place of a full noun.

There are many different kinds of pronouns.

Hello Nida Ilyas,

Dear sir,
Would u plz help me to distinguish strong verbs and weak verbs and their functions?
Thank u.

Hello Belal Hussain,

'Strong' verbs are also called 'irregular' verbs and 'weak' verbs are also called 'regular' verbs. Regular verbs have regular past simple forms, which are formed by adding 'd' or 'ed' to the end, e.g. 'talk' --> 'talked'.

Irregular verbs have a different past simple form, e.g. 'speak' --> 'spoke'.

Does that make sense?

All the best,

Hello Sir,
I read in a web page that a pronoun must always refer to a single, clear, unmistakable noun antecedent and because of that the sentence below is wrong :
1. I did not attend the rally , which was very unpatriotic of me.
On the other hand , somewhere else I read that Sometimes an adjective clause modifies an entire sentence and that the sentence below is correct :
2. The team won the championship, which shocked the opponents.
Why sentence '' 1 '' is wrong ( if it is ) while sentence '' 2 '' is correct ?
Thank you,
Arvin

Thank you very much, sir .Your answer helped me a lot.

Hello Arvin,

There is nothing wrong with the first sentence other than the space before the comma! Both sentences are grammatically correct for the reasons you state: the relative clause describes the whole of the main clause, not just one noun phrase within it.

Sir, There are many complicated people.
There are many people left.

There are many people complicated.
There are many left people.

first above two sentences are right and acceptable but the two below don't look right and acceptable I think that is not the right sequence for the verb left and adjective complicated right ? any other ?

Sometimes we use 'The' in front of Road and sometimes we don't. I think road is countable but by names. what is your take on this ?

Hello SonuKumar,

'Complicated' is a normal adjective and precedes the noun which it describes.

'Left' in this sentence is a past participle describing the noun. It has a passive meaning - effectively it means 'people who are left' and it must follow the noun just as other participle clauses/phrases do. You can read more about these forms on this page.
