After reviewing the concept of metaphor as found in cognitive linguistics, text deixis is defined and exemplified as a procedure related to both situational deixis and anaphora. 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. Keywords: Anaphor, Deixis, Demonstratives, Metaphor, Metalinguistic metaphor, Text deixis
