The inflection of demonstratives refers to the phenomenon in which morphologically distinct forms of a demonstrative are used to mark case. From a typological perspective, sentences featuring demonstratives in adnominal (attributive) function with a verbal predicate should be considered.  Morphonophological alternation alone does not mark case. A demonstrative attaching to a finite verb as an affix or a clitic does not constitute demonstrative inflection. If multiple strategies exist to mark case in the given language, the primary (structurally dominant) strategy should be considered.
NoCase: The language does not have case inflection.
NoDem: The language does not have demonstratives.
Dem=Aff: Demonstratives are affixes and cannot be inflected.
Dem=Clit: Demonstratives are clitics and cannot be inflected.
NoDemCase: Demonstratives are standalone words, but cannot be marked for case.
DemAff: Case is marked on demonstratives using suffixes.
AffDem: Case is marked on demonstratives using prefixes.
DemCaseTon: Case is marked on demonstratives using tone.
DemCaseInflex: Case is marked on demonstratives using phonemic differences in the noun stem (internal flexion).
CaseMix: Case is marked on demonstratives using various strategies, with no dominant strategy.
 Pronominal demonstratives, which can be used independently, usually display the same inflectional paradigm as nouns, and thus are not considered from a typological perspective.
 In terms of this parameter, it is irrelevant whether case forms mark the arguments of the verb or other adverbial functions.
 If, for example, case is marked through the use of affixes, it is irrelevant whether the affix attaches to the base form of the demonstrative or a variant. Morphological variation of the demonstrative is only relevant when it functions to mark case.
 This value applies if the noun is marked in the same case even without the demonstrative affix.
 This value applies if the noun is marked in the same case even without the demonstrative clitic.
 The noun a demonstrative modifies, however, may be marked for case. This should be detailed in the commentary.
