The pronoun as an independent part of speech has grammatical features characteristic of words of this part of speech.

A pronoun combines groups of words that point to a person or object, feature, quantity, or contain a question, but do not name them. Each group of pronouns is capable of replacing nouns, adjectives, or numerals. Accordingly, noun pronouns, adjectival pronouns, and numerical pronouns have different grammatical features.

Permanent grammatical features of pronouns
All pronouns have a constant grammatical feature – a category of meaning. In Russian there are nine classes of pronouns:

Personal (I, we, we, you, you, he, she, it, they) point to a person or object and answer the questions who? what?
the reflexive pronoun “itself” indicates that the action is directed to a person;
possessive pronouns (my, your, your, your, our, your) indicate that the object belongs to someone and answer the question whose?
indicative pronouns (that, this, such, so much, such) point to objects, their quality or quantity;
determinative pronouns (himself, the very, all, any, other, any, other) point to a generalized feature of the object or person in question;
interrogative (who? what? which? which? which? whose? how many?) are used in interrogative sentences to formulate a question about an object, feature, or quantity;
Relative (who, what, what, what, how, whose, which, how much) are used as a link between the parts of a compound sentence and act as allied words;
indefinite (somebody, something, some, some, several, somebody, something, some, somebody, somebody, somebody, something, somebody, something, somebody, something, someone, someone, etc.) indicate indefinite objects, attributes and quantities;
Negative (nobody, nothing, no one, nothing, nothing, no one, nobody) indicate the absence of an object or feature.
Personal pronouns have a grammatical feature – the category of person:

1st person pronouns – me, we;
2nd person pronouns – you, you;
The number category of 1st and 2nd person pronouns is a permanent grammatical feature.
