Lesson 050

Demonstrative pronouns in the Instrumental

We’ve already covered Russian personal pronouns in the Instrumental case. Today let’s have a look at the demonstrative pronouns:

The first pronoun in a pair is in the Nominative case, the second one is in the Instrumental case.

This:
э́тот – э́тим
э́та – э́той
э́то – э́тим
э́ти – э́тими

That:
тот – тем
та – той
то – тем
те – те́ми
