Definition: A pronoun in dative case (i.e. indirect object form) which refers back to the noun in subject position and is used to indicate that the subject benefited in some way from the object of the verb in the sentence. For example, in the sentence, "She ate her some lunch," the subject, "she," benefited from the object, "lunch." Typically found in Southern dialects of American English.
