I guess, just like Moten uses pronouns for "this, that, yon place" and
"this, that, yon time". Their declined versions are often used adverbially
to mean "here", there, from here, now, then, etc..." but they can even be
used adjectivally (their genitives in fact) like purely spatial or temporal
demonstratives (like "the house of that time").
