Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses different types of pronouns. This chapter helps the reader to understand the uses of first and second person pronouns in academic writing and differentiate among several functions of third person pronouns: for emphasis, as an appositive introducer, and as a remote demonstrative. The chapter also helps the reader to distinguish between similar-looking interrogative and demonstrative pronouns and identify the reference of the clausal substitutes. It allows the reader to distinguish between the substitutes as a direct object and a demonstrative pronoun, identify the reference of reflexive and reciprocity pronouns, and to become familiar with various meanings of set expressions.

Keywords: demonstrative pronouns; interrogative pronouns; pronouns; reciprocity pronouns; reflexive pronouns
