Pronunciation[edit]

Noun I[edit]

Pronomen n (genitive Pronomens, plural Pronomen or Pronomina)

  1. (grammar) pronoun (sensu lato); pronoun (sensu stricto), or pronominal adjective or determiner

Usage notes[edit]

The English word pronoun is sometimes used with a different meaning than Pronomen. In the strict sense of the word pronoun, "ours" is a possessive pronoun, but "our" is a possessive adjective or determiner. In German, however, both kinds of words are called Pronomen. The grammatical difference can be expressed e.g. by calling "ours" a substantivisches Pronomen (substantival pronoun) and "our" an adjektivisches Pronomen (adjectival pronoun).

Etymology[edit]

From Latin pronomen.
