I am studying my pronouns right now for sixth grade, while i was looking over the words,i saw that the word THAT is a pronoun, how can it be a pronoun?

  • Grammar -

    "That" can be a pronoun when it stands for a noun.

    Examples:

    That is a great idea!

    I don't understand that.

  • Grammar -

    It's a pronoun when it's used in place of "which."

  • Grammar -

    Thank you both so much, now i simply understand.

  • Grammar -

    You're welcome. :-)

  • Grammar -

    It is because a pronoun describes a noun.
