Jamaican has both mono-morphemic and bi-partite demonstratives. The bi-partite demonstratives are formed with the proximal demonstrative dis (< Eng. this) or the distal demonstrative dat/daa (< Eng. that) plus the spatial adverbs ya (< Eng. here) and de (< Eng. there), respectively, to produce dis-ya and dat-de. These demonstratives, like their mono-morphemic counterparts, precede the noun.
However, the bi-partite demonstratives have disjoined versions in which the mono-morphemic demonstrative precedes the noun and the spatial adverb follows the noun, e.g. dis man ya 'this man here' and da man de 'that man there'.
