Russian demonstrative pronouns

(Redirected from Russian demonstrative pronouns)

Russian demonstrative pronouns are pronouns used to point out a person or an object which can indicate items in space or time. They can be singular or plural.

There are ways to say “the” in Russian by using pronouns as defining indicators. To say that you want THIS something, use the pronouns “этот”, “это”, “эта” and “эти”. If you want THAT something, use “тот”, “та”, “то” and “те”, depending on the gender and number of objects, of course. To say “the” in Russian in the meaning of “exactly this” or “exactly that” something, just add a demonstrative particle “вот” or “вон”, respectively: “вот эта карта (exactly this map)” or “вон этот стул (exactly that chair). In most cases though, when you want to say “the” in Russian, simply omit and forget about it.
