    I can use this/that/these/those noun when I want to stress who or what I am talking about. When I use them, they imply that there are other things of the same type being discussed, so that these need to be singled out from among the others. For example when I am talking about more festivals or more friends, I may have to specify which one am I talking about: that festival, that friend. 1 A: I go to festivals regularly. In fact, I was on a festival last night. B: Was that festival fun? (However, I can use "was it fun?" just as correctly.) 2 A: I bred some dogs. One of them bit me last night. B: Is that (dog) a pit bull? (However, I can use "is it a pit bull?" just as correctly.) 3 A: The cellphones at my house are the same these cellphones. B: Do those cellphones work well? (However, I can use "Do they work well?" just as correctly.) Am I correct? Thanks!

    In the following sentences, I know that I should repeat "they", "they", "she", "he" and "it" instead of using "the <noun>" in the second part. But can I use 'the <noun>' if I introduce something using the verb "be" then talk about it with the second sentence directly following the first, not later on, and can the hearer understand that "the <noun>" mean "the noun I called it earlier"? Ex: 1 This is a letter. The letter is written in spanish. (Does "The letter" mean "the letter I called it earlier"?) 2 It is a box. The box is red. I will open the box and … (Does "The box" mean "the box I called it earlier"?) 3 That is a thief. The thief is tied to a post by a rope. (Does "The thief" mean "the thief I called they earlier"?) 4 They are doctors but the doctors are not kind. (Does "The doctors" mean "the doctors I called they earlier"?) 5 They are slaves, and the slaves are mine. (Does "The slaves" mean "the slaves I called they earlier"?) 6 She is a slave, and the slave is mine. (Does "The slave" mean "the slave I called they earlier"?) 7 He is a doctor but the doctor is not kind. (Does "The doctor" mean "the doctor I called they earlier"?)

I do not know what he does now")? 3 Imagine that I have a tiny person who is small enough to hold in the palm of my hand and I do a magic trick, open my hand and they are not there. But instead there is a rabbit?. Then I say to the audience/other people "who was this?", so will the hearer understand and understand that "Who was this in the past? or Who was this at first?"?
