Mensagem:  You can go about simply using the terms expletive when you can replace this, that, etc with a subject pronoun and determiner -- like the words the, a(n) -- when it comes before a noun.

That smells good. (expletive, you can replace that with it in a subject or object position )
That book is good. (determiner, you replace that with the or a)
