Demonstrative Determiner / Pronoun

That is a demonstrative determiner, it allows you to explain which N you are talking about: that car, that broken cup, that one.

-ci -là
this one that one
these (ones) those (ones)

Subordinating conjunction / complementizer

  • introduces a complementary clause
  • very similar to the French word que in function if not in form. One notable exception is the comparative where English uses than and as rather than that.
  • can be dropped in many (though not all) sentences. This is often noted as ø in grammar books.
