Demonstrative Adjectives
(they show --or demonstrate-distance between nouns)
For example: The buoy is far from us. It
Is also far from the sail boat. The sailboat is
very far from us.
The fish, however, is near the sailboat.
The fish is far from the buoy and very far from us.

demonstratives agree in gender and
number with the nouns they modify.
