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

There are many different kinds of pronouns.

He was, perhaps, a little too smartly dressed for a holidaymaker. Sir, do we really need to use these commas covering 'perhaps' here or is it still right to use no commas here ?
My brother sees or looks at something right now. I think I should ask him 'what do you see or look at' rather than asking him these questions in continuous form because see and look at are stative verbs right and what about 'watch' should I use that in continuous form in this situation ?

Hello SonuKumar,

It's fine to not use the commas in that sentence if you prefer that. I think most people would use them, as they represent a kind of pause in speaking, but there's not strictly necessary.

The present continuous form is better because he is looking at the thing right now, at this time. The simple forms suggest his looking is a habit rather than something he's doing now. It's similar to the verb 'wear'. 'I'm wearing a hat' is a statement about right now, whereas 'I wear a hat' is a statement about a regular or habitual action.

All the best,

Sir, Children always speak the same language what their parents do. I think I should replace 'as' with 'what' in this sentence right ? should I also use 'Which' in this sentence rather than what though I'm talking in general ?

I have the same toy as yours is right sentence or should I only write like this I have a toy just like yours ?

Hello SonuKumar,

'What' does not work in this sentence. You can say the following:

Children always speak the same language as their parents.

Children always speak the same language that their parents do.

 

For your second example you can say the following:

I have the same toy as you.

I have a toy just like yours.

 

Best wishes,

Sir, we should 'the' before next plan while asking someone eles about what their next plan is because they already know about it right ?

Sir, is it wrong to say these sentences-
If you are going to talk to me like this, then I will not talk to you or If He is going to come my place, I will not go home. rather than saying ones with the subordinate cause like this- If you talk to me like this or if he comes to my place ?
Second question.
what do you think next plan should be ?
or
what do you think should be next plan ?
which is right and more acceptable?

Hello SonuKumar,

Yes, those first two sentences are correct. 'if you are going to' suggests the speaker is unhappy about the situation. As for your second question, 'should be' should come at the end -- you need to use a reported question structure here. I'd suggest putting some kind of determiner (e.g. 'our' or 'your' or 'the') before the word 'plan'.

All the best,

Sir, Could we use 'Until' or till in negative sentences like this-
Don't go anywhere until I don't come or till I don't come back or is there any other sentence in which this use is possible ? perhaps I have seen it somewhere perhaps in song and somewhere else as well please clear my doubt about it.
