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

There are many different kinds of pronouns.

Sir, what does it mean 'it's not like that' I looked for it on internet but found nothing does it mean nothing like that or it's nothing and one last question please help, is all of them a distributive pronoun or indefinite pronoun if we talk about pronouns ?

Hi Team
Which one is correct and why:
They enjoyed at the party. OR They enjoyed themselves st the party.

Hello Pavan Kaur,

The second sentence (with 'themselves') is correct. The verb 'enjoy' is either reflexive (with 'yourself', 'myself' etc) or it has a direct object ('enjoy the meal', 'enjoy the party' etc).

Hi. You, my good sirs, are awesome.

Just want to ask something.

Do you need to use comma after the pronoun "this one" wheb the sentence is written like this:

I remember watching this one years ago.

*, I'm not studying anymore. Just wanted to clarify something.

Hello Clifford123,

There is no need for a comma in that sentence. Time phrases like 'years ago', 'last week', 'at the weekend' and so on are generally not preceded by commas.

Sir, perfectly you are right but what about, you have done it yourself or you can do it yourself ? what are they supposed to mean ?

Hello SonuKumar,

You have done it yourself has a similar meaning to You yourself have done it but is less formal and less emphatic. The second form is quite rare in modern English and is really a rhetorical device used in quite formal speeches and the like.

Sir, You yourself have done it means you have done it by yourself but does it give a little different meaning than these two ( you have done it yourself) does it mean you have done it for you or yourself ?
You yourself can do it means you can do it by yourself but is it little different in meaning than those ( you can do it yourself) does it mean you can do it for you or yourself ?

Hello SonuKumar,

We use 'by yourself' to show that something was done independently and without any help. We use 'you yourself' to emphasise that it was you, not another person, who did something. In particular we use 'you yourself' to emphasise responsibility for something positive (an achievement) or negative (a crime, for example). It has a sense of 'take credit for this' or 'don't blame anyone else for this'.
