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

There are many different kinds of pronouns.

Comments

Hello Ellenna,

In a formal letter you should avoid using the addressee's first name in this way. In other words, you should use 'Dear Mr Smith', not 'Dear Mr Robert Smith'.

One exception to this is when you don't know the addressee's gender, though in this case you don't use the title. For example, the name 'Jordan' is commonly given to both boys and girls in English, so if you needed to write to 'Jordan Smith' and didn't know their gender, you could say 'Dear Jordan Smith'. Note that it's not 'Dear Mr Jordan Smith'.

Thak you! You helped me a lot!

Sir,
I have enough money
I have enough of the money
They used 10 percent eggs
They used 10 percent of the eggs
I have more personnel
I have more of the personnel

I think these are interchangeable and two different ways of writing the same thing isn't it or is there any difference in them ?

Hello SonuKumar,

The use of 'the' here is no different to the use of 'the' elsewhere. It tells us that we are talking about a particular set or group of items, not about something in general.

I have enough money (general)

I have enough of the money (which we brought with us)

Sir,
1-Price List for Self-finance materials/Price List of Self-finance materials.
What is the correct preposition here for/of?

Hello Imran 26,

There is no fixed rule for this but I would say 'for' is the most natural choice.

Sir,
Much more of amazing music
or Much more amazing music
Many more of the other artists
or Many more other artists
Enough of the day or
Enough day.
I think these all are correct and also interchangeable in some specific context but these things confuse my mind revolving around it and I gets into thinking as to which one to use and which not. what should I study in English grammar to clear this confusion out of my mind ?

Hello SonuKumar,

Could you please provide some context for these phrases? 1, 4 and 6 are all a bit unusual. They might be possible in a specific context, which is why it would be much easier to explain them if you provided a bit of context.

Thanks in advance.

1-Kindly send us the details as per request for customer.
2-Kindly find the attached file as Price list for Self-Finance materials.
Sir, did I use correct preposition in above two sentences? I use these sentences twice aweek in e-mail correspondence but I am confuses about there preposition.

Hello Imran 26,

If I've understood what I think you mean, for 1 I would recommend 'Kindly send us the details as requested by the customer' (a customer requested details from you and you need to get them from someone else). For 2, I would recommend 'Please find the price list for self-finance materials in the attached file'.

I hope this helps you.

All the best,
