|11.3 Neutral demonstrative pronoun|
|eso, esto, aquello|
|eso, esto, aquello can be combined with todo or nada|
|Further, the neutral demonstrative pronouns are to be found in questions|
As we have seen the demonstrative
pronouns are not easily transferred 1:1 to the English
ones. Sometimes we use the neutral personal pronoun
instead of a demonstrative pronoun. Ssometimes 'this'
is used because we refer to something that we have just
talked about or is to be defined more closely. Therefore
it is easier to forget about the transfer from English
to Spanish and try to take the logic of the Spanish
in. Just the question How
far is the object away 1)
from the speaker? - if close = este,
esta 2) from the one
the speaker is speaking to? - if close = ese,
esa 3) far from both?
= aquel, aquella.
