5. Definition

5.1. Indefinite pronouns are those referring to one or more unspecified objects, beings, or places. They are called "indefinite" simply because they do not indicate the exact object, being, or place to which they refer.

5.2. Types

5.2.1. Affirmative

5.2.1.1. In affirmative sentences, indefinite pronouns using some are used to describe an indefinite quantity, the indefinite pronouns with every are used to describe a complete quantity, and the pronouns with no are used to describe an absence. Indefinite pronouns with no are often used in affirmative sentences with a negative meaning, but these are nevertheless not negative sentences because they are lacking the word not.

5.2.2.1. Negative sentences can only be formed with the indefinite pronouns that include any.
