Pronouns

As pronouns by de nition stand in for nouns and nouns are subject to case (see 4.1), so are pronouns. The following sorts of pronouns occur in both English and German: personal pronouns (e.g. I, me), possessive pronouns (e.g. my/mine), re exive pronouns (e.g. myself), demonstrative pronouns (e.g. this, that), relative pronouns (e.g. the man who/that …), interrogative pronouns (e.g. who, which, what), inde nite pronouns (e.g. someone, several). Each category of pronoun has its own complexities and they are looked at individually in this chapter.
