  1. Demonstrative Pronouns Avancemos 2 – Unidad 2 Leccion 1

  2. Demonstrative Pronouns What we’ve discussed so far is demonstrative ADJECTIVES. Adjectives describe nouns: Quieroestamanzana. – I want this apple. Now we’ll talk about DEMONSTRATIVE PRONOUNS. Pronouns take the place of nouns They agree in gender and number with the noun they replace. No quieroestamanzana; quieroésa. – I don’t want this apple; I want that one.

  3. Demonstrative Pronouns In English, demonstrative pronouns translate as “this one, those ones, etc.” The only difference between a demonstrative ADJECTIVE and a demonstrative PRONOUN in Spanish is the accent mark. If it’s a pronoun, there’ll be an accent mark over the first “e” in the word. If there is a noun after it, it’s an adjective; if there’s not, it’s a pronoun. Remember: “No noun equals pronoun”

  4. Demonstrative pronouns - they have accents!

  5. Demonstrative PronounsIn Spanish, the demonstrative adjective and the demonstrative pronoun may refer to the same thing. You will however see an accent on the demonstrative pronoun.Compare: Demonstrative Pronoun ¿Cuánto cuesta éste? How much does this one cost? Ése cuesta diez dólares. Thatonecosts 10 dollars. Aquél es más barato. Thatone (overthere) ischeaper. Demonstrative Adjective • ¿Cuánto cuesta este uniforme? How much does this uniform cost? • Ese uniforme cuesta diez dólares. Thatuniformcosts 10 dollars. • Aquel uniforme es más barato. Thatuniform (overthere) ischeaper.
