Lesson 3.3: Summary of Pronouns[edit]

Pronouns are used to replace nouns, e.g. John goes becomes He goes.

Pronouns have cases, number and gender just as regular nouns do.

A summary of all the pronouns is given in the table below.

NOTE: For the third person they are masc., fem., neuter within one box (in that order).
