zhè     this / these

繁体 traditional: 這
语法 grammar: 代词 Pronoun
笔记 notes: 这 is often followed by a measure word, such as 个, emphasizing 'this' particular thing. For example, 对这个消息 'regarding this information ...' (Lao She, 2003, p. 235) 这 is always placed before the noun that it refers to. Its part of speech is also classified as a determiner. The use of this character as a demonstrative pronoun began in vernacular texts from the Tang (Norman 1988, p. 119). 这 is the 13th most frequently used word in the Beijing Language Institute's 1985 frequency wordlist (Ho, 2002, '这'; NCCED '这' 1).
