Reciprocal Pronouns: Rules & Examples

What Are Reciprocal Pronouns?

“Each other” and “one another” are known as reciprocal pronouns. Because they show a reciprocal relationship.

We use this pronoun when two or more subjects are acting in the same way towards another. For Example, John is looking at Bob, and Bob is looking at John. So we say:

  • John and Bob are looking at each other.

There are only two reciprocal pronouns:

  • each other
  • one another


  • Each other is used for two persons or things.
  • One another is used for more than two persons or things.
