    Cool It/This/That, Here/There

    Actually, I know the difference between them. The thing I want to ask about is whether there's a difference between here/there as well as this/that/it in colloquial speech. Ex.:

    I know this
    I know that
    I know it

    The house is here
    The house is there

    Isn't it hard sometimes to say precisely what is where?

    Thank you

    It's not always clear- a lot depends on the view of the speaker and the context.

    Distance can be physical/social/temporal or other.
