Demystifying Pronouns

043 – In this episode, Heather and her 15-year-old daughter Grace have a thoughtful and enlightening discussion about pronouns. Grace has wisdom far beyond her 15 years, and yet is acutely in touch with the teenage experience. If you are curious about how to use pronouns properly and what they mean, this is the episode for you! 

Here are four tips from linguistics specialist, Dr. Kirby Conrad:
 1.     Slow down! Plan your speech. Meeting another’s need sometimes means talking carefully and thoughtfully.

2.     If you’re correct, LISTEN! Do not talk over someone if they are correcting you. Be humble and cultivate awareness.

3.     Don’t make excuses. Period.

4.     If you mess up, correct yourself briefly and don’t make a big deal out of it. You are human, it’s going to happen.
