Demonstrative article invented by composer Flint Juventino Beppe.

Theh [šəh]

Through the years, I have come across situations when I could not find the words I needed in my vocabulary to express myself accurately enough. So, I had to invent the words, and add them in the glossary of mine. One such a word is the demonstrative article "theh".

Definition

theh [šəh]

Demonstrative article used to point out "the one and only" / "the greatest" and similar, or to point out something unique / irreplaceable about a noun or adjective. The pronunciation is also characteristic.

What is special about the demonstrative article is that you also can use it before an adjective, generating a special meaning and mood because when using "theh", you actually change the adjective to become a noun.

Examples:

a) — I was looking for a matchless and incomparable racing car; then one day I came over theh car, and bought it immediately.
b) — My girlfriend is my true love. She is theh love.
c) «Theh Goldest» Op.27. In this work title of mine, "Theh" replaces the superlative, i.e. The (most) golden (something).

In the above-mentioned examples, some would have written "THE" to underline the meaning, e.g. "THE love".
By using "theh" instead, one avoids contaminating the language with three capitalised letters (adding unknown or inconsistent pronunciation). Furthermore, "theh" is easy to recognise in spoken language because of its characteristic pronunciation: theh [šəh].

On an (ironic) end-note: It is also worth pointing out that I had to create the term «demonstrative article» to be able to classify «theh».
