Correction (not suggested by me): Demonstrative pronoun?

Actually, the second word of verse (4:109) here is divided into 2 morphological segments: A tanbeeh particle and a demonstrative pronoun. The same tanbeeh particle is also in the previous word (4:109:1). It performs a different function from the vocative. Unfortunately, this particle is not listed in the Part-of-Speech Tagset. Another tanbeeh particle is (2:12:1). Perhaps the tanbeeh particle can be called the Attention Particle -- ATT.
