Some pronouns indicate the object in itself, without reference to its class, and have no distinction of gender. These are Personal Pronouns. They stand syntactically for Nouns, and have the same construction as nouns.
Other pronouns designate a particular object of a class, and take the gender of the individuals of that class. These are called Adjective Pronouns. They stand for Adjectives, and have the same construction as adjectives.
Others are used in both ways; and, though called adjective pronouns, may also be treated as personal, taking, however, the gender of the object indicated.
In accordance with their meanings and uses, Pronouns are classified as follows: -
|Personal Pronouns (§ 290).||Interrogative Pronouns (§ 333).|
|Demonstrative Pronouns (§ 296).||Relative Pronouns (§ 303).|
|Reflexive Pronouns (§ 299).||Indefinite Pronouns (§ 309).|
|Possessive Pronouns (§ 302).|
