Reciprocal Pronouns


Reciprocal Pronouns 





We use reciprocal pronouns when each of two or more 

subjects is acting in the same way towards to other

For example:


A is talking to B , and B is talking to A’’

So we say :


-A and B are talking to each other


-        The action is ‘ reciprocated ’ .


Sarah talks to Adam and Adam talks to Jack .

I give you a present and you give me a present

For example :


-       The dog bites the cat and the cat bites the dog .


They are only two reciprocal pronouns , and they are both two words :


1.   Eachother

2.One another


When we use these reciprocal pronouns :



-         There must be two or more people , groups or things 

invovled ( so we can not use reciprocal pronouns with I , you , 

he , she , it)

-       They must be doing the same thing


Look at these examples :


-We gave each other gifts.

-They can not see each other

-Sarah and Adam love each other

-Why do not trust each other ?


Note :

-You probably notice that each other is used in more 

examples above than one another , that’s because in 

general we use each other more than one another , which 

sounds a little formal .
