Hi folks! I wonder if anyone can help me with this one.
How do you call it when you repeat a pronoun such as "it" in an essay so many times that the reader loses track of what it refers to. How can one avoid this since one has also to avoid repeating the noun which is been placed by the pronoun.
Thanks for your help.

I'm sure someone here will know what a more technical name for it might be. ;-)
