498. Demonstrative root

Though the demonstrative root ta is prevailingly of the third person, it is also freely used, both in the earlier language and in the later, as qualifying the pronouns of the first and second person, giving emphasis to them: thus, sò ‘hám, this I, or I here;  or sā́ tvám thou there; te vayam, we here; tasya mama of me here, tasmiṅs tvayi in thee there, and so on.
