(Lao She, 2003, p. 235) 这 is always placed before the noun that it refers to. Its part of speech is also classified as a determiner. The use of this character as a demonstrative pronoun began in vernacular texts from the Tang (Norman 1988, p. 119). 这 is the 13th most frequently used word in the Beijing Language Institute's 1985 frequency wordlist (Ho, 2002, '这'; NCCED '这' 1).
