In the Dickinson core vocabulary, they categorize the part of speech of vos as an adjective, but the singular tu as a pronoun. Is this just a typo in their database or is there some reason for the distinction? Note that both are listed as being in the pronoun "semantic category". It's only in the part of speech that they differ.

Since nos (the closest comparator, along with tu, ego and so on) is classified as a pronoun, I think it is safe to conclude that it is an error in the database.

The vos entry is also irregular in that it contains the other cases (vestrum etc.) in the 'Definition' section rather than under the 'Headword' so I think it has probably been digitized sloppily.
