Pronouns

ByNancy Stenson

Several types of pronouns will be covered in this chapter. The most important and most widely encountered of these are the personal pronouns, which stand in place of people, places, or things that have been previously named in the discourse or are known from context (e.g., the speaker or hearer). Others, to be introduced below, include demonstrative, interrogative, and prepositional pronouns.
