Exclamatory pronouns: types and sentences with examples

What are exclamatory pronouns?

Exclamatory pronouns are those words that replace the noun in exclamatory sentences. Exclamatory sentences are those that express excitement, surprise, anger, or some other intense emotion, as in “How beautiful is that girl!” or «What a nuisance!».

Like all pronouns, exclamatives do not make sense by themselves, but refer to a noun that must already be known, the antecedent or referent. For example, if we say «How beautiful she is!», the referent could be «that girl», or someone mentioned before the exclamatory sentence.

Exclamatory pronouns, like interrogative pronouns, always have accents to differentiate words from other uses. For example, it has an exclamatory use when you say «!Who I would say it!”, but not in “It was Marcos who he said it!».

It is also common that exclamatory pronouns can be confused with exclamatory adjectives. For example, in «How fast!», the that is a pronoun, but in «How fast!» It’s an adjective. In the first sentence, fast is an adjective and that replaces the antecedent noun; and in the second, speed is a noun, so the that works as a demonstrative adjective.

Exclamatory sentences are easy to identify because they are usually framed by exclamation points (!), although, as with interrogative questions, there may be indirect exclamatory sentences, as in “How much he had to invest to achieve this”, which can be written without exclamation marks.

What are exclamatory pronouns?

As. Example: How you have grown!
How. Example: How beautiful it is!
how much Example: How much will they have found.
How many. Example: How many did you pick up today!
How much. Example: How much did they get tonight!
How many. Example: How many arrived in less than an hour!
Where. Example: Where has such a thing been seen!
That. Example: What will they say when it is known!
Who. Example: Who would have thought!
Who is it. Example: Who wouldn’t want to do it!

It should be noted that in Spanish the exclamation mark is used to open and close sentences. It is incorrect to put only the final sign.
