Pronunciation[edit]

Determiner[edit]

iste (feminine ista, neuter istud); demonstrative pronoun (pronominal)

  1. (determiner) that (near you); those (in the plural)
  2. (pronoun) that one (near you); that (thing); those ones (in the plural); those (things); he, she, it

Usage notes[edit]

  • This demonstrative determiner/pronoun is used to refer to a person or thing, or persons or things, near the listener. It contrasts with hic (this), which refers to people or things near the speaker, and ille (that), which refers to people or things far from both speaker and listener.
  • As Latin had no person pronouns specifically meaning "he", "she" or "it", any of ille, iste, hic or (most frequently) is could assume that function.
  • In Classical usage, iste frequently has a secondary, pejorative function of casting the referent in a negative light; for example, iste homō tends to mean "that (infamous/no good) man". This is opposite to ille, which is often used to cast the referent in a positive light. For example:
  1. "Iste," inquit, "sceleribus suis tollētur."
    "That man," he said, "will be taken away for his crimes."
  • For this reason, iste is often avoided in Classical usage as a neutral demonstrative. However, the pejorative function was missing or disappeared in Vulgar Latin, where iste was frequently used as a simple demonstrative and eventually came to replace hic in the meaning "this" (cf. Spanish este), sometimes strengthened with ecce (cf. French cet from Old French cist) or with eccum (cf. Italian questo).
