Usage notes[edit]

This demonstrative can be used alone, as a pronoun. It is used as a demonstrative for plural nouns of either grammatical gender. In this capacity it precedes the noun, with the genitival adjective n in between, e.g. "these feet" is nf n rdw (literally "this of feet").

It forms a contrastive pair with the demonstrative pronoun nn, in which case nf is distal. .

There is a more colloquial variant: nf3
