|Portuguese term or phrase: demonstrativo|
|NOTE: I don’t think DEMONSTRATIVE fits the context below, without significant modification (as in my translation). Comments/suggestions?|
Nesses termos, o morfema -, em construção demonstrativa, abarca duas funções gramaticais, resultando em uma forma amalgamada, codificando posse e demonstrativo
In these terms, when the - morpheme appears in a demonstrative construction, it encompasses two grammatical functions thereby resulting in an amalgamated form, encoding a unit at once possessive and demonstrative
|English translation:[by virtue of being in a] demonstrative construction|
I'm not sure if the morpheme by itself is demonstrative, so I'd recommend sticking closer to the original.
Thus, the morpheme, by virtue of being in a demonstrative construction, takes on two grammatical functions, resulting in a blended form that signifies both the possessive and the demonstrative.
