Complex semantics of pronouns given the problem of transitivity of part-of-speech described in the works of V. V. Babaitseva, I. V. Vysotsky, M. I. Otkupschikov, E. V. Paducheva, E. N. Sidorenko, Y. B. Smirnova, E. A. Fedorchenko, etc. The author of the article pays attention to the conditions under which the pronouns in speech media, Internet resources and artistic speech lose their index functions and can act as nouns. The author gives a complete characterization of the term “omocomplex”, discusses traditional and occasional links its nominative chains.

Slapovsky and discuss his language game with grammatical category of gender as a successful linguistic experiment.
