27.192 The Indefinite Pronoun and Adjective

Croy introduces the indefinite pronoun and adjective in section 192. As you can see, the forms of this pronoun are identical to the interrogative pronoun except for the accent. The indefinite pronoun is "enclitic" which means it does not have an accent of its own and instead "leans" on the accent of the word it is attached to.

Don't let the accent marks in the paradigm fool you! 99% of the time the indefinite pronoun has no accent mark at all. The accent marks shown in the paradigm apply only when the special rules of accentuation cause the otherwise accent-less pronoun to receive an accent because of another enclitic that might be following it.

Make sure you study Croy's examples of the use of the indefinite pronoun carefully. There are various ways to translate the indefinite pronoun into English and Croy's sentences show you some of the different options that are available.
