PRONOUNS, PERSONAL. Pronoun redundant after a conjunctional clause

Insertion of Pronoun. When a proper name is separated by an intervening clause from its verb, then for clearness (see 248) the redundant pronoun is often inserted. “Sueno, albeit he was of nature verie cruell, yet qualified he his
displeasure.” HOLINSHED, Duncane. “Demeratus--when on the bench he was long silent . . . one
asking him . . . he answered.” B. J. Disc. 744. “For the nobility, though they continued loyal unto him, yet
did they not co-operate with him.” B. E.
