In the name of the Merciful Allah,
Hello, would you please tell me what's a demonstrative article, in English?
I read this term in a book on toefl. Here is its quote: In the example, the highlighted words are a phrase containing a demonstrative article (this) and a noun (purpose).
demonstrative adjective (as in "this purpose") [sometimes called a 'demonstrative determiner']
demonstrative pronoun (as in "this is the purpose")

o I think this sandwich is very tasty.
o Follow that car!
* Demonstrative pronouns
o It doesn't get any better than this.
o That's amazing!
Excellent reply, Bobk.
Some grammarians call "this," "that," "these," and "those" dermonstrative articles.
[I call them definite determiners.]
