Transcript of Pronouns

Indefinite pronouns are used for non-specific things.

This is the largest group of pronouns.

All, some, any, several, anyone, nobody, each, both, few, either, none, one and no one are the most common. DEMONSTRATIVE
These pronouns are used to demonstrate (or indicate).

This, that, these and those are all demonstrative pronouns.
These pronouns are used in questions.

Although they are classified as pronouns, it is not always easy to see how they replace nouns.

Who, which, what, where and how are all interrogative pronouns. POSSESSIVE
Possessive pronouns are used to show possession.

As they are used as adjectives, they are also known as 'possessive adjectives'.

My, your, his, her, its, our and their are all possessive pronouns. RELATIVE
Relative pronouns are used to add more information to a sentence.

Which, that, who (including whom and whose) and where are all relative pronouns. ABSOLUTE POSSESSIVE
These pronouns also show possession.

Unlike possessive pronouns (see above), which are adjectives to nouns, these pronouns sit by themselves.

Mine, yours, his, hers, ours and theirs are all absolute possessive pronouns. RECIPROCAL
Reciprocal pronouns are used for actions or feelings that are reciprocated.

The two most common reciprocal pronouns are each other and one another. REFLEXIVE
A reflexive pronoun ends ...self or ...selves and refers to another noun or pronoun in the sentence.

The reflexive pronouns are: myself, yourself, herself, himself, itself, ourselves, yourselves and themselves. OBJECTIVE
Objective pronouns are the object of a verb.

Me, you, him, her, it, us, you and them can all be objective pronouns.
Subjective pronouns are the subject of the sentence.

I, you, he, she, it, we, you and they can all be subjective pronouns
