Could you explain a bit of the followings?
1. tämä v.s. tässä v.s. tällä
2. tuo v.s. tuossa v.s. tuolla
3. se v.s. siinä v.s. siellä v.s. sillä

By the way, could you also explain what are grammar mistakes of the picture that you left in your "loma" blog, but i think maybe, perhaps it's better to write "syö tässä" instead of "tällä"? Thanks.

Yeah sure, that seems like a good subject for a post!

"Syö tällä" was wrong indeed, because it should have been TÄÄLLÄ. "Täällä" means "here". "Syö tällä" means "eat with this (thing/spoon/fork)" -> (syö tällä lusikalla).

Your suggestion of "syö tässä" works if the sign would have been on top of one specific table for example, because "tässä" refers to a small area, and "täällä" to a bigger area. The right word in this context is "täällä" because it's telling people that they can eat inside the whole establishment, not just at one specific table or spot.

Re: situations
