A pronoun is a word that takes the place of a noun in a sentence.

Examples:

Carol greeted the teacher. (She greeted him)

Titi and Olu broke the pot (They broke it)

There are various classifications of pronouns. They could be personal pronouns  such as he, she, they; demonstrative pronouns  (e.g. this, these); interrogative pronouns (e.g. which, who); indefinite pronouns (e.g. none, several); possessive pronouns (e.g. his, your); reciprocal pronouns (e.g. each other, one another). In this lesson and the next, we will be discussing demonstrative and relative pronouns.

Demonstrative Pronouns:

Demonstrative pronouns are the words this and these, that and those. This and those are used to refer to an object or objects which is or are near to the speaker while that and those are used to refer to an object or objects which is or are far from the speaker. Note that demonstrative pronouns occur before the words (usually nouns) that they describe. Consider the following:

As you can see, the demonstrative pronoun and the noun it describes make up a noun phrase. The demonstrative pronoun is the determiner and the noun is the headword.
