The demonstrative force ('this') of [face=SPIonic]ou(=toj
[/face] often refers to something that's already been said. So, "this word" in "you say this word" likely refers to a saying that is known.
There is another demonstrative pronoun - [face=SPIonic]o(/de
[/face] - which also means 'this'. But it usually refers to something not yet mentioned. So, [face=SPIonic]le/geij ta/de
would mean "you speak this (these)" in the sense "you speak as follows".
