Chapter Summary

With the substantives, proper names, adjectives and numerals the pronouns have in common that they take part in the categories of case. A detailed discussion of the pronouns has to face two tasks: the description of forms and that of the lexical meanings and categorial values. This chapter gives a survey which for brevity's sake will list only one of the total numbers of correlative adverbs of each pronoun. The three reflexive pronouns have the common value of implying that the persons referred to are identical to those referred to by another word in the same sentence or close context, for instance by the personal category of a finite verb or by another pronoun. The case-number and gender values are wholly similar to those of the adjectives. In Latin, however, both the interrogative pronouns and the indefinite pronouns have emphatic counterparts: quis? - quisnam? and aliquis - quisquam.

Keywords: categorial values; indefinite pronouns; interrogative pronouns; lexical meanings; reflexive pronouns
