Comment: Also most generic demonstrative 'this' /lexeme/18965/. This is the usual pronoun used in the nominative case. For the oblique cases specific independent third person singular forms do exist, but these exist (G. οὗ, D. οἷ, A. ἕ), but these are not the most regular forms used in Attic prose. Cf. H.W. Smyth & G. Messing (1956). Greek Grammar (Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press) §325d. Normally the anaphoric/intensive pronoun αὐτός /lexeme/18762/ is used in this sense in the oblique cases.
