On the previous page, you could read how a Dutch pronoun turns into a pronominal adverb when it occurs together with a preposition. Below is a list of the Dutch pronouns that are subject to this mechanism. Note that they are all pronouns referring to inanimate things.
In the list below, you can read that het turns into the adverb er:
|preposition + het
Likewise, dit turns into the adverb hier:
|preposition + dit
And so on.
||Turns into adverb
|Personal pronoun [inaminate]
|Demonstrative pronoun [independent]
|Interrogative pronoun [independent]
|Relative pronoun [inaminate]
||dat, die, wat
|Indefinite pronoun* [independent]
(*) For indefinite pronouns, it is not compulsory to use a pronominal adverb.
Possessive, reflexive, reciprocal, and exclamative pronouns never turn into pronominal adverbs.
The different types of pronouns will be discussed on the following pages. Where applicable, you will be referred back to this page.
