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

There are many different kinds of pronouns.



Sir, what's the difference between I'm going to do or I'm going to be doing and where should they be used ? I've checked it out on internet already but, I didn't find a satisfactory answer.

Hello SonuKumar,

As with most forms with future meaning, the context is important here. However, the key difference in most contexts is as follows:

I'm going to have dinner at six o'clock.

I'm going to be having dinner at six o'clock.

The first sentence tells us that dinnner starts at six o'clock. The second sentence tells us that at six o'clock you will be in the process of having dinner. It may have only just begun or it may be nearly finished; this is not clear from the sentence.

Sir, I Iost my Mom in 2010 because of her brain haemorrhage, since then I have to do loads of home task. But Even after that I have a strong interest in learning English. I have some schools near me but because of much work in home and after 10+2 I don't get time to go to some English teachers in schools and ask my questions related to English to them. I have some books but not many and high-standard. But I really want to learn English as much as possible by my whole heart. and In this situation, you've been really, really a great help to me and I hope you will continue to be so in future as well. Though I know I sometimes ask questions not relating to the material of English on this site but, as My English is improving, I'm trying to be limited according to this site rules yet thank you so much for responding us all users on the questions even not related to the material on this site.

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?

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,

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