PRON: pronoun


Pronouns are words that substitute for nouns or noun phrases, whose meaning is recoverable from the linguistic or extralinguistic context. In Classical Armenian, pronouns inflect for number and case. The Classical Armenian grammar traditionally extends the term pronoun to words that substitute for adjectives. Such words are tagged as determiners in UD in order to annotate the same thing same way across languages. For instance, այն/ayn ‘that’ is traditionally called a pronoun in the Classical Armenian grammar, regardless of context. However it can either substitute for a noun or an adjective, in which case it is tagged (DET).
