The spatial adverbs are the only available demonstratives in Negerhollands, as in Papiamentu, where ‘that house’ can only be rendered by di hus da, lit. 'the house there’; di hus without da means ‘the house’ and not ‘that house’.
In Negerhollands the noun is preceded by the determiner di. The spatial adverbs hi(so) ('here') and da: ('there') can either precede or follow the determiner plus noun.
