Why is this "those letters ARE from you" instead of "those letters from you"
those = itu
these = ini
These letters from you = Surat-surat dari kamu ini.
Those letters from you = Surat-surat dari kamu itu.
Aidan did NOT ask about the difference between those en these... but about "ARE from you" and "from you"
These letters are from you <== sentence
These letters from you <== noun phrase
Surat-surat dari kamu ini

How would "Those letters are from you" be written different to "These letters are from you"?
Surat-surat ini dari kamu = these letters are from you
Surat-surat itu dari kamu = those letters are from you
ini = this, these
itu = that, those
Would it be correct to write "These letters are yours"?
That would mean "surat-surat ini milikmu"
