Point 89 in the category of PRONOUNS/  quantity is defined as:

‘each’, ‘either’, ‘enough’, ‘neither’, ‘several’ as subject and object pronouns.

Two examples from PELIC B2/C1 students:

subject pronoun

object pronoun

Although these vocabulary items are easy to find, they usually are not acting as subjects or objects.  This makes finding more information about the point very manually tiring.  Even if we put a verb after them, they might be a different grammar point.  Usually a determiner or a long conjunction phrase.

________________

We checked the first 1000 entries in PELIC and found two examples:

145,fn2,Korean,Female,117,5,w,4,1,272

They have re[a]d a lot of cases, have discussed those cases, and have thought they have got enough.

 

836,eg5,Korean,Female,115,4,w,65,1,347

There are other things that they have to think about, but it is enough to choose a college.
