2.6 Inflection of pronouns and determiners

The term ‘pronouns’ traditionally includes elements which substitute for nominal phrases (determiner phrases) as well as those that substitute for adjectival phrases. Among medieval Latin grammarians, the pronomen was supposed to stand for a nomen substantivum (‘noun’) as well as a nomen adjectivum (‘adjective’). Modern grammarians often distinguish between pronouns (e.g. everyone) and determiners (e.g. all [people]).
