Indefinite Pronouns in English
Like in many languages, in English, we use certain expressions instead of repeating a specific noun. These expressions not only help avoid repetition but also add fluency to the sentence. These pronouns, like he, she, and it in subject pronouns, take -s, -es, or -ies endings when the verb is in the third person singular form:
