    What are the pronouns?

    From the point of view of the grammar, a pronoun is a word or phrase that we use instead of the noun or the noun phrase of a sentence. The pronouns can act as nouns - they can be a subject, a direct or indirect object.

    In the Bulgarian language there is a big variety of pronouns that are used often and for different purposes. In this page we give a overall view of them and how to use them.
