Posters must NOT use any pronouns

Postby Black Hat Guy » Wed Mar 27, 2013 6:20 am UTC

No pronouns allowed, like y*u, h*, sh*, t*em, etc.

Is pretty certain Deva would have little trouble communicating without pronouns
Every finger is touching and searching / Until your secrets come out,
In the dance, as it endlessly circles / I linger close to your mouth.
--
This sentence is as succinct as possible.

Manages. Struggles with questions, however. Uses interrogative pronouns frequently.

Needs a topic. Created dog, cat, and bird threads already. Are turtles acceptable?

Was going to complain because thread already exists. Was in other subforum, though. Also more related to Deva. Prefers this thread anyway. Is a bad loser in Pokémon fights. Wants to take revenge on Deva. Will not acknowledge existence anymore. Furthermore, likes turtles. Enjoys seeing a turtle posted by an anonymous user.

Do "this" and "that" count as a pronoun, or do they not? Understanding why speaking like so is difficult is difficult. Now understanding like so is easier.

Regular sentences with any pronouns simply unincluded sound like cheating. To be cool, all sentences should be completely rephrased to fit rule #1. That's one view, anyways.

The first option. Also the bolded word is a pronoun. Pronouns are words which are used in place of nouns. Here is a reference:

Communication without pronouns is the way of the future! Every sentence should make sense independent of the context.

Sense the current situation makes? No sense is to be found within this situation.
Expression of agreement with previous statements regarding the cuteness of turtles, but tortoises make better pets.

My sister had one of these, since being small to be really big. A turtle or a tortoise? Never known.

Re: Posters must NOT wield any pronouns

Given such words as given above to be cheating, the possibility of correct speaking becomes easier, as a list of incorrect words are given and can be avoided.

The identification of an interesting problem may have occurred. Interrogative pronouns exist, but are banned. How would a question be formed, then? Elmach hath a wish to seek a person knowing how to ask without interrogative pronouns. Indeed, the problem with interrogative pronouns exist only when asking for people or things; otherwise, there are no problems. A question more in need of answering is of the use of the relative pronouns. Relative pronouns seem harder to be removed, although often-times, more than the simple removal of relative pronouns is unnecessary.

Elmach does not need interrogative pronouns. Elmach does not even need interrogative sentences. Elmach should use declarative, imperative or exclamatory sentences mostly. For examples:

dudiobugtron wishes to know if readers also heard the buzzer sound (intracranially) when readers read ArDeeJ's post.
Tell dudiobugtron if Elmach heard the buzzer sound when reading ArDeeJ's post.
dudiobugtron hear buzzer sound! dudiobugtron smash!

Is there a point to the post above? A potential problem is not seen.

Because of a slow ninja-edit.

The post above may be unneccesary, as the point can be said to have been shown in the post thrice before. A thing to note is that "how" is not in the complete list of pronouns given earlier.

A third point to be added follows: the mod madness may change some words around. Probably not between pronouns and nouns, however.

A buzzer sound was not heard when the current poster read ArDeeJ's post, as explained above. Merely a small beep was heard.
