The analysis of narrative examples highlights different types of text deixis which can be understood as metaphoric extensions of the above mentioned metaphor basic metaphor. Metaphorically, demonstratives can indicate proximity or distance from a textual, temporal or emotive perspective; in addition, deixis am Phantasma and presentational deixis, which are not related to any linguistic antecedent, are considered as special cases of text deixis.
