Demonstrative adjectives

The adjectives are seven fractions. We have already seen the adjectives of quality; now we are going to grapple the demonstrative ones. There are only four demonstrative adjectives and they usually come before the nouns o poon ‘n’ roe’T e a as follows, r rnusoeo ‘ns hy re . 1. “ h ” h h e osa s s gl pr n r b ct ts l e T i w i dm nt t a i u r e o o oj th ic s: s c re n a s e a o o This pen is my pen. o This is a smart girl.

2. “ htfr s gl f a a pr n thing. T a o a i u ra w y e o or ” n a r s o That boy over there is my nephew. o That is the car my father bought yesterday.

3. “ hs”sh aj t e e s t pi t a ru o polo t nsht T ee it d cv w ueo o to gop f ep rh g t are e ei n e i a near. o These shoes are expensive o These people come to see you.

4. “ hs”ni t g gop f ep o t nsrm to n n a “vr T oe i c i a ru o pol rh g f w o ad r oe d an e i o e tr. he e” o Those are my brothers (over there) o Those are the tools I talked about last time.
