How do i determine , these or those?

https://www.duolingo.com/Kosmokrator

this, these = este/esta/esto, estos/estas

that, those = ese/esa/eso, esos/esas

The forms of this and these all have 't' in them, ('est-') while the firms of that and those do not ('es-').

A tee is the spot where you put the golf ball at the start of a hole. :)

Oh, and also an informal word for "T-shirt".

So you're asserting that myffuD was wrong then?

Yes, I do. Unless there is something going on in the world of fashion that I (and the dictionary) are not aware of. Which is entirely possible.

Is it normal to capitalize the T in T-shirt?

According to Grammarist, edited (on average, more formal than unedited) writing most often uses "T-shirt" because origin of the name is the "T" shape of the shirt. It's not shaped like a "t." That being said, "t-shirt" follows standard English capitalization and is what I personally see most often as well as use myself. It looks awkward to have a random capital T in the middle of a sentence.

Thank you so much DL for allowing "shirt" for "t-shirt" now.
