Pronouns are small but powerful words that often trip us up. This month’s Chicago style workout, “Grammar, Part 3,” centers on sections 5.27–37 of CMOS 17, which cover the definitions and uses of pronouns.
Note: Style guides and dictionaries sometimes disagree. These questions are designed to test knowledge of The Chicago Manual of Style, 17th edition.
[Editors’ note: Chapter 5 of CMOS is quite large, comprising 248 numbered sections on grammar and syntax, plus another hefty chunk on usage. For the sake of variety, workouts will revisit the chapter periodically rather than continuously.]
