This volume has two chapters: adupadagalu (pronouns) and torupadagalu (proforms). The first chapter describes how the three pronouns, nanu, ninu and tanu are used in sentences, what functions they carry out, and how they differ from nouns. It also describes how they differ from avanu, avalu, adu etc. that are regarded as torupada. The second chapter groups words like avanu, avalu, adu, alli, illi, enu, elli etc. into a different group called torupada and describes their characteristics and functions. It also points out that words like enu, elli, yaru, yake etc., though generally regarded as interrogative pronouns, need to be regarded as indefinite pronouns.
