someone (sg): yashlilu
someones (pl): qualilu
everyone (pl): yúulilu
no one (sg): ulilu

something (sg): zulim
somethings (pl): quaim
everything (pl): yúuim
nothing (sg): uim

The following four can either act as pronouns or as adverbs in a sentence:

somewhere (sg): zudziq
somewheres (pl): quadziq
everywhere (pl): yúudziq
nowhere (sg): udziq

For the sake of verb agreement, ulilu, uim, and udziq count as pronouns that are singular animate and singular inanimate, respectively. They do not require the verb to be negated.

Nobody can see me.

Pronouns do not have case inflection; they can be used in any position in a sentence without changing their form.

Any of the pronouns can be combined with verbs to form more descriptive types of pronouns:

young one (3S AN): jazushaan
young ones (3P AN): jazushanti

Any of the dual or plural pronouns can be modified with the prefix mi- to become distributive.

each of us (dual): miwacushi
each of them (AN): mishanti
