The boy grew to become at the tv while he got here domestic. this can be by way of a long way the commonest form of reference. 2 Pronouns have cataphoric reference once they check with a following noun/noun word. hence hun refers back to the following noun word den gamle dame in: Hun er virkelig rar, den gamle dame. She is admittedly great, the previous girl. this sort of utilization is mostly present in the spoken language. three Pronouns have deictic reference after they determine, or ‘point to’, an item within the speaker’s rapid atmosphere (‘deixis’ is the Greek note for ‘pointing’): Han skal være vores næste formand.
