No, the word 'they' is a pronoun, a word that takes the place of

a noun in a sentence.

The pronoun 'they' is a personal pronoun, the third person,

plural, subjective. The pronoun 'they' takes the place of a plural

noun, or two or more nouns as the subject of a sentence.


The boys will be home any minute and they will

want some lunch.

Jim, June, and the boys are coming for lunch. They

will be here at one.
