A fifth fact which would explain the lower frequency of demonstratives in Latin in relation to Romance languages is related to the expression of the function of anaphora made by the anaphoric pronoun (AP) is/ea/id and their identity pronouns (IdP) correlates idem/eadem/idem (FARIA, 1958): in 11 cases, the presence of this form in Latin corresponds often to demonstratives in Romance languages.
In examples (18a), (19a) and (20a) the anaphoric pronoun can be bound only by the complex NP-internal binder (so the books could only concern the Kowalskis and be written by the the Kowalskis), whereas in examples (18b), (19b) and (20b), the anaphoric pronoun can be bound by both the NP-internal binder and the fronted object (so the books could be about either the Kowalskis or the Nowaks, as Polish anaphoric binding is insensitive to the Specified Subject Condition).
1) WS near demonstratives in the plural are most commonly construed around a base 'Vl(lV), as in Hebrew 'elle, Old Aramaic 'l, BA 'elle and 'el, while far deixis is, again, expressed by suffixed -k or the respective anaphoric pronoun.

Interestingly, the case paradigm for the anaphoric pronoun represented in (9) lacks a nominative form.
Clackson states that Latin lacks a third-person pronoun other than the reflexive se; and that "oblique forms of the anaphoric pronoun is, ea, id are used to supply the deficiency" (p.
8) The anaphoric pronoun ("that, the aforementioned") is analyzed with respect to syntactic context (determination of the antecedent noun or of the pronoun, 48), and the emphatic anaphoric pronoun (BT- or BNT-"the/that very, the/that same"; to be distinguished from the intensive personal pronoun is a newly recognized form.
Finally, another unnatural solution would be the use of anaphoric pronouns agreeing in gender and number either with the metonymic target or with the metonymic source.
