1 Using Demonstrative Adjectives to Express Position Adjective-describes a noun Give me the red book. Give me that book. Give me this book. Pronoun-takes the place of a noun Maria is next; give her the ball. That pencil is yours; this is mine. This book is mine; that is yours.

2 As you know, there are three kinds of Demonstratives In Spanish: One that points out someone or something near the speaker. One that points out someone or something farther away. One that points out someone or something at a greater distance. aquí = right here (near) allí = right there (further away) allá = over there (great distance)

3 Demonstratives can also be pronouns that take the place of nouns. They have the same gender and number as the noun they replace and have a written accent. ¿Saben quién es ese señor? becomes ¿Ése? Sí, es el reportero. Aquella reportera es del canal 2, ¿no? becomes Aquélla es del canal catorce.

4 In Spanish, the only difference between demonstrative pronouns and demonstrative adjectives is that demonstrative pronouns have a written accent. Juan reads this book. (adjective) Juan lee este libro. Juan reads this one. (pronoun) Juan lee éste. That statue is Greek. Esa estatua es griega. That is American. Ésa es americana.

5 This, That or That One Over There??? este-this -Este libro es de Bill. ese-that -Ese chico se llama Esteban. aquel-that one over there - El libro es de aquel chico.
