In TSL, signers often point straight fingers to refer to certain individuals, events, or locations, or draw an area to indicate plurals. These kinds of signs are known as demonstratives. When referring to a specific entity, the demonstrative is signed with one hand, and the pronoun with the other (or nouns and numbers that can act as pronouns). Signers also often designate a certain position in front of the body as representing certain entities and then point to it with straight fingers when they wish to refer to the entities.Here are several demonstratives (always signed with right hand):1. Indicating specific entities, such as you, I, they, there, here2. Indicating an area or a premise, such as location, inside the house, neighbors.3. Above or below a certain base level, or outside an area, such as above, below, more than 20, approximately, outside/other.4. Ordinal number, such as first (item).Demonstratives almost always concur with nouns or pronouns. Even if it occurs alone, it must be referring to an entity mentioned earlier or linked to a specific position or direction that refers to an entity.
