Structure: Indefinite and Reciprocal Pronouns.
Indefinite Pronouns are those pronouns that don’t refer to specific people or things.
Below are examples of indefinite pronouns:
any some all
anybody somebody everybody
anyone someone everyone
anything something everything
no one many
Note that some indefinite pronouns take singular verbs while others take plural verbs
Everyone is present
Nobody cares about him
Something is missing somewhere.
Everybody has left for the occasion
Few are needed for the job
Many want to be like her
Also, some indefinite pronouns can be used to show ownership/ possession
That is somebody’s pencil
Don’t steal anyone’s property
His health is everybody’s concern
These pronouns are used when the actions of the verbs are shared by two or more people or things. Reciprocal pronouns are of two forms: “Each other” and “one another.”
My friend and I love each other dearly.
The players congratulated one another on their victory.
Note that “Each other” is used when two people or things shared the action while “One another” is used when more than two people or things are involved.
List the pronouns in the following sentences, stating their types:
- While I was taking my bath, somebody knocked at the bathroom door which was locked.
- John asked himself what he was doing when a thief stole his watch.
- To whom was that letter addressed?
- Adamu and Sule fought each other yesterday.
