A pronoun is a word that substitutes for a noun or an adjective. For example, consider the sentence "Oleg gave the coat to Natasha." All three nouns in the sentence can be replaced by pronouns: "He gave it to her." If the coat, Oleg, and Natasha have been previously mentioned, the listener can deduce what the pronouns he, it and her refer to and therefore understand the meaning of the sentence.

Common types of pronouns found in the Russian language are subject pronouns (aka personal pronouns), reflexive, possessive, interrogative, relative, demonostrative, determinative, negative, and indefinite pronouns. You will be able to recognize pronouns from all these groups as you progress with your Russian language studies.

The biggest challenge when learning Russian pronouns is that most of them change by person, number and gender, as well as agree with nouns by cases. In other words, you will have to study a variety forms that Russian pronouns take in a sentence. Our grammar lessons are designed to answer all the questions you may have about Russian pronouns.
