Comments: In Kar. besides ho- there exists a synonymous variant wu- (wu-ʎu-b,wu-gu-b,wu-du-b). The stem *ħu- 'that' is opposed to PA *ħo-/*ħi- 'this' (q.v.), although they sometimes get contaminated. It is often used in conjunction with another PA deictic rood *dV- q.v. Some languages reveal here (as also in the case of *ħo-/*ħi- ) a loss of initial *ħ-: it is possible that a combination of deictic (emphatic) *ħV- + deictic *ʔu- is reflected.
