What is a pronoun?

Pronouns are some of the most useful words in the English language. They are used in the place of a noun to avoid it having to be named twice.

Definition of Pronoun

In English, the part of speech used as a substitute for an antecedent noun that is clearly understood, and with which it agrees in person, number, and gender.

Pronouns are classified as

Personal or Subject Pronouns used before the verb

I, you, he, she, it, we, you, they

Object Pronouns used after a verb or a preposition

me, you, him, her, it, us, you, them

Possessive Pronouns

mine, yours, his, hers, ours, yours, theirs

Possessive Adjectives always used with a noun

my, your, his, her, our, your, their

Reflexive Pronouns

myself, youself, himself, herself, ourselves, yourselves, themselves

Demonstrative

this, these, that, those

Relative

that, which, who, whom, whose, when, where, why

Interrogative

who, which, what, when, where, how, why, whose, whom

Indefinite

As the word “indefinite” suggests, these pronouns do not specify the identity of their referents. They are more vague than other pronouns:

everybody-everyone-everything – all

some – any

many – much – few – little

one – other – another – others

both – several
