Proto-Sino-Tibetan: *ʔa
Sino-Caucasian etymology: Sino-Caucasian etymology
Meaning: demonstrative pronoun
Lushai: hei this
Lepcha: a this
Kiranti: *ʔà-
Comments: Cf. also: Karen *ʔV, Idu a, Tani *ʔV, Konyak *ʔa, Manipuri a-du, Sichuan *ʔa 'that, this'. Some languages reflect a variation of ʔ- (0-) / and emphatic h- (besides Lushai, cf. Sulung *hV-, Aka *hVŋ, Konyak *ha-, Mikir ha-la, Magar ho-se, Kham hō), but there seems to be no reason for reconstructing two different pronouns.

Sino-Caucasian etymology: Sino-Caucasian etymology
Meaning: that (demonstrative pronoun)
Proto-Nakh: *ʔo
Proto-Lezghian: *ʔa
Proto-West Caucasian: *a
Notes: This demonstrative stem is mostly used for far deixis ("that") as opposed to *ha- (q.v.) for near deixis or emphatic deixis. We must note, however, that in many modern languages it is extremely complicated to make a clear-cut distinction between the reflexes of these two pronominal morphemes.

Comment: This pronoun stem is normally used in compounds (in Arch. e-mi-k 'there', e-mi-ši '(towards) there' probably an assimilative vowel fronting < *ʔa-mi-); separate usage attested only in Lezg. a 'that'. Cf. also Rut. a-r-baj, Tsakh. a-d 'inside'. See Алексеев 1985, 75.

Kolami : am/amd, avr, ad, adav "that man, those men, that woman or thing, those women or things"
Naikri : avnd, avr, ad, adav "that man, those men, that woman or thing, those women or things"

Notes : The inflected forms are as follows: *avnd_ (masc. sg.), *avr (masc. pl.), *ad (fem. sg.). As for the fem./neut. pl. form, external data shows *av to be most archaic. The form adav has obviously developed by analogy with ad; as for Naiki anda, it is unclear.

Konda : vānr_u (obl. vani-)

Notes : This deictic base had the following declineable forms in PGn: *aw-ant_[-u] (whence Gondi *ōn-R, Konda vānr_u with a metathese, etc.) 'that man', plural *aw-ar[-u] 'those men'; fem. *a-d-i (PK *ādi by analogy with masculine forms), plural *a-v-i. Also reconstructed for the PGn level is *a-c- 'that many, that much' (PG, PPM, PK); *a-tal 'that side' (Konda, PK, possibly Gondi); *a-mb-/*a-b- 'there' (Konda, PPM, PK). An enormous number of derivatives has been formed independently in different languages (which is characteristic of all deictic bases).

Proto-Kui-Kuwi : *a/*ā
Meaning : that (remote)
Gondwan etymology: Gondwan etymology
Kui : a- "that over there"
Kuwi (Fitzgerald) : ā "that most remote"
Notes : There are four main deictic stems in PK: *a-, *i-, *e-, *u-. Of these, *i- is the simplest of all: it is preserved in all the main sources of data (that is, Kui, Kuwi_F and Kuwi_S) and always means 'this'. As for the other ones, all three were preserved in Kui where they seem to retain their original functions: e- as 'that nearer', a- as 'that further' and o- (from *u-) as 'that at the greatest distance'. In Kuwi_F *e- was lost, and the other two shifted meanings: u- 'that intermediate', a- 'that farthest'. In Kuwi_S, instead, *a- was lost, but the other two forms were left intact.
