Procedures Warming up by learning about demonstratives Demonstratives A demonstrative is a pronoun or adjective which indicates which item is being referred to. Demonstratives are words to point to something based on its location. "This" and "that" are English demonstratives. They can also be used to point something talked about in a conversation. Example: "That's a nice idea." There are only six demonstratives, two singular, two plural and two that refer to location:
SINGULAR: this and that PLURAL: these and those. LOCATION: here and there A demonstrative pronoun is a demonstrative used in the place of a noun. A demonstrative adjective is a demonstrative used to modify a noun. Examples: Demonstrative pronoun: Can I see that? Demonstrative adjective: Can I see that shirt?
