Pronom indéfini

French Indefinite Pronoun

Indefinite pronouns refer to people or things without saying exactly who or what they are. They are vague or "not definite" because they do not refer to any specific person, thing or amount. Because they are pronouns, they stand alone; they do not accompany a noun like indefinite adjectives do.

French indefinite pronouns:

tout everything
tout le monde/tous everyone/everybody
plusieurs several
chacun each person
quelqu'un someone/somebody
quelque chose something
un/une autre another one
d'autres others
personne no one/nobody
rien nothing

Variable indefinite pronouns must agree in number and gender with the nouns that they replace:

chacun/chacune, quelques-uns/quelques-unes, un/une autre, d'autres

Invariable indefinite pronouns do not change:

personne, rien, quelque chose, quelqu'un
