Them VS Those
Hi. I work with customers, and they'll often point to objects on or behind the counter and say, "Can I have two of them?"
I think they really should be saying, "Can I have two of those/these?"
I guess I'm thinking of the sentence being, "Can I have two of those items?", in which case saying, "Can I have two of them items?" is completely wrong.
Is there a difference if the word "items" isn't present? Is saying "them" still incorrect?
It is correct to say "Can I have two of them?"
It is also correct to say: "Can I have two of those items?" and "Can I have two of these/those?"
Actually pronoun 'they' is also plural of 'it'.
While 'This/That/These/Those' are demonstrative pronouns.
