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
