Pronouns

Pronouns are words that take the place of nouns. We often use them to avoid repeating the nouns that they refer to. Pronouns have different forms for the different ways we use them.

I really find this website interesting .
Thank you a lot.

Sir,
When we say "Native Speakers".
We are talking about the peoples who speaks British English/American English or we are talking about the peoples who belongs to the country where national language is English?

Hello Imran 26,

The term native speakers applies to people who speak any language as a mother tongue rather than having learnt it as a second language. Thus, a person can be a native speaker of English, Spanish, Chinese or Urdu. Everyone is a native speaker of at least one language, and many people are native speakers of more than one. For example, I live in Poland and my children learned both English and Polish at home. They are native speakers of two languages. In school they are learning a third language - French - but they will never be native speakers of this, even if they become very proficient.

Got the point. Thanks a lot.

Worth and value as nouns
When are they interchangeable and when they aren't ? ( only as nouns )

Sir,
I have read noun section in this site, there is a sentence ;
1-There are some birds in the trees.
can I say this sentence like that" There are some birds on the trees. I am confuse about the preposition used "in". birds sits above the trees so why there use preposition "in".

Hello Imran 26,

With trees we always say 'in' and not 'on'.

If you said 'on' then it would mean that the person is literally standing on the tree just as you might stand on a roof. It's similar to the way we say 'in the river' even if only the soles of your feel are actually touching the water. We do, however, say 'on a branch'.

thank you Sir,

Hello Sir,
Please let me know the sense of below sentences.
1- I am not much to help you.
2- I am not enough to help you.

I want to know how to use last and the last
What I understabd is, for example, if we are in march 2018 then last year is 2017 and last month is Feb
But If I say last Feb. Does this mean Feb 2017 ?

Can I use the last this way :
We are in may 2018
I'm saying to a friend : in 2017 I had an accident and the last year I broke up

The last year refers to 2016 ..refers to last year to the one I mentioned
Is this correct ?
