Pronouns are classified as personal (I, we, you, he, she, it, they), demonstrative (this, these, that, those), relative (who, which, that, as), indefinite (each, all, everyone, either, one, both, any, such, somebody), interrogative (who, which, what), reflexive (myself, herself), possessive (mine, yours, his, hers, …
Whereas in English, the object pronoun goes after the verb (e.g. I call him.), in Italian, it goes directly before the verb (e.g. Lo chiamo.) In the case of a negative sentence, non goes first, with the pronoun right before the verb: (e.g. Non lo chiamo.)
• PRONOUNS “Ours, yours or mine? It’s its.” Case refers to the form a word takes and its function in a sentence. The English language has just three cases: subjective, possessive and objective.
A pronoun (I, me, he, she, herself, you, it, that, they, each, few, many, who, whoever, whose, someone, everybody, etc.) is a word that takes the place of a noun. In the sentence Joe saw Jill, and he waved at her, the pronouns he and her take the place of Joe and Jill, respectively.
There are seven types of pronouns that both English and English as a second language writers must recognize: the personal pronoun, the demonstrative pronoun, the interrogative pronoun, the relative pronoun, the indefinite pronoun, the reflexive pronoun, and the intensive pronoun.
Italian Personal Subject Pronouns: In Italian there are 7 personal subject pronouns: 4 for the singular, 3 for the plural. Personal subject pronouns are usually dropped as the conjugation is usually enough to determine the grammatical person.

What are the 78 Gender pronouns? Gender traditionally was associated with a person’s sex which was assigned to them at birth. In every societal structure, there are predefined gender-based roles, assigned to their binary genders.
She, her, hers and he, him, his are the most commonly used pronouns. Some people call these “female/feminine” and “male/masculine” pronouns, but many avoid these labels because, for example, not everyone who uses he feels like a “male” or “masculine.” There are also lots of gender-neutral pronouns in use.
She/her/hers and he/him/his are a few commonly used pronouns. Some people call these “female/feminine” and “male/masculine” pronouns, but many avoid these labels because not everyone who uses he feels like a “male” or “masculine.”
The ze/hir, ze/zir pronoun sets come from the trans community as another gender-neutral pronoun set. It’s up to each individual to decide which pronoun best fits them and their identities. Ze is typically pronounced like the letter Z.
Neopronouns are a category of new (neo) pronouns that are increasingly used in place of “she,” “he,” or “they” when referring to a person. Some examples include: xe/xem/xyr, ze/hir/hirs, and ey/em/eir.

Possessive Adjectives in Italian. Italian possessive adjectives agree in gender (masculine/feminine) and in number (singular/plural) with the noun they refer to. The Italian possessive adjectives are preceded by definite articles and agree in gender with the noun possessed, not with the possessor.
