Notes

What is a demonstrative adjective?

The definition of demonstrative adjective describes it as an adjective that tells us where one or more objects are located. In English there are four demonstrative adjectives: this, that, these, those

The use of one adjective instead of another depends on two factors: the amount of things the adjective refers to and the distance of those things from the speaker. For example both "this" and "that" refer to a single thing but "that" points toward something which is farther away from the speaker than "this".
