    Talking 202-deictic

    Hello all

    What does (deictic) mean (or a word near to it, because I'm not completely sure about that)? What does it do in translation and linguistics?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi, Matilda

    Deictic expressions are word whose meaning depends on the context they are used in . Examples of deictic words : personal pronoun [I, you, he, she..]
    demonstrative adjectives [this, that, these, those], some adverbs [ here, there]. Deictic words cannot be isolated in a context.
