PRON: pronoun

Definition

Pronouns are words that substitute for nouns or noun phrases, whose meaning is recoverable from the linguistic or extralinguistic context.

Pronouns under this definition function like nouns. Note that Armenian grammar traditionally extends the term pronoun to words that substitute for adjectives. Such words are not tagged PRON under our universal scheme. They are tagged as determiners in order to annotate the same thing same way across languages.

For instance, այդ  “that” is traditionally called pronoun in Armenian grammar, regardless of context (for the notion of determiners in some Armenian grammars, terms exist like attributive pronouns or pronominal adjectives). To make the annotation parallel across languages, it should be now tagged PRON in Այդ քո՞ մեքենան է։  “Is that your car?” and DET in Ես այդ մեքենան երեկ եմ տեսել։  “I saw that car yesterday.”
