I like to think of it as a Pro Noun, or Professional Noun. It can do everything a noun does, but faster using a shorter word. Instead of saying,Christopher went to the market, I can use the pronoun "He". He went to the market. Get it?

The applies for she too, like She went to the market if it was a girl. Same with It. It is fun.

Here is a complete list of them. It is long, but if you know the rule you can figure out if a word is a pronoun really easily.

all
another
any
anybody
anyone
anything

both

each
each other
either
everybody
everyone
everything

few

he
her
hers
herself
him
himself
his

I
it
its
itself

little

many
me
mine
more
most
much
my
myself

neither
no one
nobody
none
nothing

one
one another
other
others
our
ours
ourselves

several
she
some
somebody
someone
something

that
their
theirs
them
themselves
these
they
this
those

us

we
what
whatever
which
whichever
who
whoever
whom
whomever
whose
