2DC: Demonstrative pronouns display a two-way distance contrast (near and far).
(1) tami ‘this’
(2) tumi ‘that’
(3) śit ‘this, that’
(Onina 2009: 31)
Synja Khanty has only proximal (tami) and distal (tumi) demonstrative pronouns (Honti 1984: 74–75). The third demonstrative śit can express proximal and distal distances, but its main function is to code coreferential relations in discourse.
