    Section: Output tokens for pronouns

    This extension adds to say phrases for

        that-those
        Cap that-those
        it-they
        Cap it-they
        it-them
        Cap it-them
        its-their
        Cap its-their
        its-theirs
        Cap its-theirs
        possessive
        Cap possessive
        
        which refer to the last noun whose name has been printed. (For simplicity the token names do not reflect this fact, but if the last noun is a person, these tokens will produce "him" or "her" as appropriate, or "you" for the player.) The possessive is "your" for the player, and otherwise "[the item]'s".
        
        that-those of item
        Cap that-those of item
        it-they of item
        Cap it-they of item
        it-them of item
        Cap it-them of item
        its-their of item
        Cap its-their of item
        its-theirs of item
        Cap its-theirs of item
        possessive of item
        Cap possessive of item
        
    accept an object and also reset the prior named thing appropriately. is-are of item prints "is" or "are" appropriately for the item, though this will likely not be necessary very often, given that is-are already picks up whatever thing was last named by the game.

    In addition, there are demonstrative adjectives:

        that-those item
        Cap that-those item
        
    print things like "those shoes" and "That hat".
