What are different types of pronouns?

There are primarily four types of pronouns:

  1. Possessive pronouns
  2. Interrogative pronouns
  3. Personal pronouns
  4. Reflexive pronouns

Possessive pronouns

A possessive pronoun denotes possession, belongingness, ownership, origin, relationship, etc.

Example – That book on the table is mine. Here, the pronoun ‘mine’ reflects the owner of the book. As such, it is called a possessive pronoun.

What are interrogative pronouns?

A pronoun used to ask a question is called an interrogative pronoun. Who, who, what, whose, and which are the five most prevalent interrogative pronouns. Longer variants of these words end in ‘ever’, such as whoever, whomever, whatever, and whoever.

Example – Who will win the Nobel this year? Here, the pronoun ‘who’ is used to ask the question. As such, it is called an interrogative pronoun.

What are personal pronouns?

A personal pronoun is a pronoun that is often used to refer to a speaker or the people or things to whom he or she is referring.

Example – I bought my son a new toy, and he does not like it. Here, the pronoun ‘he’ reflects who the speaker is referring to. As such, it is called a personal pronoun.

What are reflexive pronouns?

A reflexive pronoun is a pronoun that refers to the same person or thing as the subject when used as an object.

Example – Ram introduced himself. Here, the subject and the object are the same and the pronoun ‘himself’ replaces ‘Ram’. As such, it is called a reflexive pronoun.
