PRON: pronoun


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

In Irish, third person pronouns (both singular and plural) have two forms, roughly corresponding to nominative (e.g. ) and accusative (e.g. é) cases. Irish pronouns also have emphatic forms (e.g. seisean and eisean) . Pronouns are often incorporated through inflection in synthetic verb forms and prepositions.

Augment pronouns appear in copula constructions when the subject is 3rd person singular or plural. The pronoun precedes the subject.

Irish demonstratives are either post-determiners (see DET), when modifying a noun, or simply demonstrative pronouns (siúd, seo, sin), tagged as PRON.

Also note that pronouns can be incorporated in a word form through inflection. Currently these forms are not split and so take the POS tag of the lemma.
