Absract. Pronouns are an excerpt of grammaticalization, its linguistic
explication. The paradigm of pronouns and its logical functionality in the invariable
relationship with their prototypes, where first and foremost together with that stands the self as the autonomy of the cognitively tempted and devoted to this self consciousness, makes sense of grammaticalization as a mechanism of categorical extension.
Keywords: pronouns; explication; grammaticalization; extension; functionality
