    1. אֶ֤רֶץ מִצְרַ֙יִם֙ לְפָנֶ֣יךָ הִ֔וא

      I think this is an example of the dem. pron. merely modifying "erets", but being put at the end of a whole phrase/clause.

    2. Explicative This/these

      Should put under master heading of "qualifies a noun", rename this heading as "predicative". Notice that if used predicatively, the dem. pron. usually precedes the noun. Remark: "the preceding demonstrative pronoun does not have the definite article, but the noun does".

    3. Enclitic

      Not sure what this means

    4. Suggest two master headings "D.P. stands for a person" (as in, even in the singular, kind of functions like a pers.pron.). And "D.P. qualifies a noun" (kind of like an adjective with both as attribute and as predicative).

    5. Antithetical—contrast

      Wouldn't that be "reciprocal"? This could be under the master heading of a dem. pron. being a reference to a person.

    6. Anaphoric Refers to another word or phrase

      This may need some extra clarification

    7. Emphasis

      It seems to me this could be a heading, perhaps under "special uses"?

    8. Unconnected to a noun

      Was there an example planned here?

    9. Apposition adjective

      Should be a subsection of "attributive adjective" (see above), remark that "neither the noun nor the demonstrative pronoun have the definite article"

    10. Attributive adjective

      Would also move this under the heading "qualifies a noun" together with [see above]. Remark that "Both the noun and the demonstrative pronoun have the definite article".

    11. First / second mention זה is used for items when they are first mentioned. הוא is used for items that have already been mentioned.

      I'm not sure about this example
