Somali demonstrative pronouns : these

Demonstrative pronouns are used with nouns to make them more specific. A unique feature of Somali is that, unlike English, the demonstrative pronoun comes after the noun as a suffix. The English demonstrative pronoun 'these' has different forms in Somali depending on whether the word to which it belongs is masculine or feminine. The demonstrative pronoun for masculine words is 'kan'. For feminine words the demonstrative pronoun is 'han'.
