Five demonstrative pronouns are recognised in Greek, all of which are inflected for Gender, Number and Case agreeing with the object referred to. The following table offers examples for all of these in the singular nominative case of the masculine form.
|Demonstrative||Gr. example||Gr. tag|
The first three of the above demonstratives may occur either on their own or followed by the nouns to which they refer, in which case the nouns are preceded by an article. The last two serve only as modifiers of nouns and do not have an independent nominal status.
The type of deixis is not encoded, although it is implicit in each pronoun.
One of the pronouns, `toutos', is more common in everyday use in spoken language, rather than in the written/formal usage of Greek.
