Proximal deixis is commonly assigned to Old Egyptian pn as well as to pw, whereas distal deixis is attributed to pf (Loprieno 1995: 68; Malaise & Winand 1999: 121f.). However, it will be shown that pw has to be understood as distance neutral demonstrative, the difference between pw and pn lying on the pragmatic level. As for distal pf, it is used only in explicit or implicit contrast to proximal pn. The evidence will be taken from the Pyramid Texts, from inscriptions and from letters and decrees of the Old Kingdom.
