PRON: pronoun

Definition

Pronouns are words that substitute for nouns u-dep/u/pos/noun or noun phrases, whose meaning is recoverable from the linguistic or extralinguistic context.
Words that substitute for adjectives u-dep/u/pos/adj (proadjectives) are also tagged as PRON in Estonian UD v 1.3.

Examples:
Demonstrative pronouns: see “this”, too “that”, üks “one, indefinite article-like usages”, esimene “first, this”, teine “second, that”, igaüks “everyone” etc.
Personal pronouns: mina (short form ma) “I”, sina (short form sa) “you”, tema (short form ta) “s/he”. For plural personal pronouns meie (me) “we”, teie (te) “you”, nemad (nad) “they”, the singular form serves as lemma.
Personal reflexive pronouns: oma, ise, omaenese, iseenese “self, oneself”.
Interrogative-relative pronouns: kes “who”, mis “what”.
Indefinite pronouns: keegi “somebody, anybody”, miski “something, anything” etc.
Totality pronouns: kõik “all, everybody”.
