Usage notes[edit]

This demonstrative was originally an adjective but could later be used alone, like a pronoun. When used as an adjective it follows or precedes the noun it describes.

It forms a contrastive pair with the demonstrative tn, in which tf is distal.

There is a more colloquial variant: tfꜣ.
