    Re: Are articals a demonstrative adj.

    the is not a demonstrative adjective.

    Demonstrative Adjectives: this, that, these, those
    Determiners: a, an, the

    Note that, some grammarians consider determiners (a, an, the) to belong to the class Adjective.

    All the best.

    Re: Are articals a demonstrative adj.

    Here are a few corrections and suggestions.

    I'm a student in a B.Ed course and our teacher asked us if we could count an article as a demonstrative adjective. For example,

    Ex: The person who came here was my brother.

    In that sentence the word the qualifies the word person. Is the article the a demonstrative adjective? If it's not, then what's its grammatical category?
