Pronouns are introduced in general terms, with reference to relevant bibliography and terminology, and with discussion of their grammatical behaviour in respect of case, number, gender,and — this last point extending into Lecture 10 — part of speech (with special reference to pronominal adjectives, especially the possessives). The distinction between deictic and anaphoric is introduced, and the use of anaphoric pronouns is discussed with reference to failures of grammatical agreement. Lecture 11 is devoted to uses of the reflexive and the many various means of expressing reciprocal pronominal relations. The demonstratives, and the four types of deixis, form the subject of Lecture 12, while Lecture 13 treats in turn the interrogatives, the indefinites, and forms of expression for ‘each’, ‘whoever, whatever’, ‘both, each of two’, and ‘one (indef.)’.

Keywords:   agreement, anaphoric, deictic, demonstrative, indefinite, interrogative, personal, possessive, pronoun, reciprocal
