Reciprocal Pronouns

A pronoun used to talk about the mutual relationship is known as a reciprocal pronoun. These kinds of pronouns are used to indicate the mutual act of persons which resulted in some action of the same nature. The action is done between the two or more persons with the same result.

There are two words of reciprocal pronouns. “One another” and “each other”.

Let’s have a look at some examples of reciprocal pronouns.

Examples of Reciprocal Pronoun

Each other is used when we are speaking about two persons or things whereas one another is used in the context of speaking about more than two persons or things.

  1. Julia and Anna promised each other to meet again in the upcoming function.
  2. They exchanged gifts with each other.
  3. The two brothers hated each other.
  4. People should love one another.
