We’ll cover the importance of the categories in the agreement lessons.

Indefinite pronouns can also be used as adjectives.

Pronoun: Either will be acceptable to my aunt.
Adjective: Either set of dishes will be acceptable to my aunt.

Two indefinite pronouns can also work as reciprocal pronouns. The reciprocal pronouns are each other and one another.

Each other is used to replace two nouns.

Jorge and Melanie help each other study for tests.

One another is used to replace more than two nouns.

The police, firefighters, and paramedics help one another respond to emergencies.

Examples of Indefinite Pronouns

  • A classic is something that everybody wants to have read and nobodywants to read. (Mark Twain, 1835-1910)
  • Of those who say nothing, few are silent. (Thomas Neill)
  • Everything is funny as long as it is happening to somebody else. (Will Rogers, 1879-1935)

  • I don’t know anything about music. In my line, you don’t have to. (Elvis Presley, 1935-1977)

When a word like all, any, anyone, etc. is used as an adjective, it is known as an indefinite adjective. (In the examples below, the indefinite pronouns are shaded.)
