Demonstrative Pronouns
Demonstrate: to show, to indicate, to point to.
Do not confuse demonstrative pronouns with demonstrative adjectives. They are identical, but a demonstrative pronoun stands alone, while a demonstrative adjective qualifies a noun.

That smells. (demonstrative pronoun)
That book
is good. (demonstrative adjective + noun)

This is Josef speaking. Is that Mary?
That sounds like John.
