A pronoun set is a set of pronouns used specifically for one or more people or things. In English, each set consists of a subject pronoun and four additional related pronouns, namely an object pronoun, a dependent possessive determiner, an independent possessive determiner and a reflexive pronoun. For example, the first person singular pronoun set consists of "I, me, my, mine, myself".
