Advanced Composition: Using Indefinite Pronouns 
February 24, 2000

An indefinite pronoun does not refer to a specific person or thing. Using them may be tricky because some are considered singular, and others plural. 

Indefinite Pronouns:

bulletSingular forms: anybody, anyone, anything, each, everyone, everybody, everything, nobody, no one, one, somebody, someone and something. For example, "Everyone is ready" or "Anything is possible". 
bulletPlural forms: both, few, many, several, and some. For example, "Many are ready" or "Few are friendly".


Most of us are bothered or worried about something in our lives. Write a short paragraph that explains one of your worries. You may worry about your children; you may be bothered by Vancouver drivers. Use two singular and two plural indefinite pronouns. If you use, for example, "everyone", be sure that what you say can be proven true.
