Abstract

This paper analyses the four types of personal pronouns (deictic, anaphoric, bound and descriptive pronouns) that we came across during a research conducted for the project “The role of explicit instruction in developing pragmatic competence in learning English and German as a foreign language”, which is underway at the Faculty of Philology, University Goce Delchev in Stip. We perform our analysis using theories and definitions from the field of pragmatics in its widest sense, which is based on many diverse approaches united by a common functional (social, cultural, cognitive) perspective on language in communication, i.e. the pragmalinguistics (linguistic pragmatics, pragmatic linguistics, * PhD, Faculty of Philology, UGD, E-mail: biljana.ivanovska@ugd.edu.mk ** PhD, Faculty of Philology, UGD, E-mail: marija.kusevska@ugd.edu.mk *** PhD, Faculty of Philology, UGD, E-mail: nina.daskalovska@ugd.edu.mk **** PhD, Faculty of foreign languages, FON University, E-mail: liljana55@yahoo.com 5 | SBESS Journal / XII (2) 2015 / www.upit.ro/SBESSJournal internal pragmatics) and focuses primarily on the study of linguistic phenomena (i.e. code) involving meaning, utterance and the context. We try to analyse personal pronouns from the point of view of their usage, since it is not easy to distinguish what is exactly referred to with a certain personal pronoun on the one hand, and on the other hand, it is very complex to capture the unsystematic image that draws the attention of all grammarians. The referential and the implicit meaning of the pronoun in the practice of communication is not always clear, and it is inevitably advisable to pay attention to it in the classroom, in the process of teaching and learning foreign languages. Key words: meaning, pragmatic linguistics, pronouns, usage.
