Grammar Summary




.A pronoun replaces a noun

A subject pronoun is used as the subject of the sentence. There are singular and plural subject pronouns





Be (Present)

.The verb be is very common in English. It is used with a noun or an adjective

For example: with a noun

Ben is a boy

:with an adjective
Moby is tall
I am fine


In the present, be has three forms: am, is and are

am is are


In the short form (contraction), we write the noun, pronoun or question word together with the verb be (am, is, are) as one word. We do that by dropping the first letter (am, is, are) and writing an apostrophe ( ) instead of the missing letters

For example: Moby is tall. = Moby’s tall

We are fine. = We’re fine
