    I'm not sure what you are asking. Do you mean modifying pronouns? If so, it can be done -- informally.

    A: They took away my job and my life.

    B: Which they are you referring to?

    Woman to her husband: You used to love the thin me; why can't you love the fat me?

    In more formal English, other ways of conveying those ideas are advisable.

    Hi,
    Maybe this one will do, too:
    He hates his own self.
    Oh no, I think self is a noun here. ???
