I brought you very important news. It is the latest news.
It is used as a subject here. But is it personal,impersonal or emphatic?
It's probably personal, however there is some kind of emphasis on the fact that it's the latest news. So I'm not sure.
What do you think?
I need to know how does "it" function as the subject. Not what type of pronoun it is.
"It" as a formal subject (to denote аbstract idea. definite thing.)
If it is liberty, it isn't going to mean a thing.
The demonstrative "it"
They learn to speak English before they learn to read it.
The impersonal "it"(to denote natural phenomena, time and distance)
It is cold in winter.
It is morning already.
The introductory or anticipatory "it"(introduces a real subject)
It's no use disguising facts.
The emphatic "it"
It was he who had brought back George to Amelia.
