Demonstratives act like determiners, attaching to classifiers, pronouns or pronimal clitics, though they can co-occur with determiners, in which case they come first: [dem]=[det]=[cls]. They have both familiarity and deictic meanings and overtones of temporal meaning.

da this, familiar to speaker here now
su that, neutral familiarity to speaker, familiar to hearer there then
yo that yon, that other, unfamiliar to speaker or hearer yonder then (future)
