<upd_detl>Google hits are good, but I am aware of the reluctance of some editors to include things which as said not to be ordinarily included in a dictionary; although of course over all the dictionaries that exist in the world many such expressions are included, including thankfully in your own dictionary. Sometimes I am never quite sure what to submit or not to submit. However, being guided by what may help a searcher, I have made this submission.

The suffix does exist, namely:-

こそ (prt) for sure (emphasize preceding word); (P )

However, on the basis of suffixes being included, by way of example, if one were being pedantic, I feel that one could possibly delete some of the following, although I am grateful they are included and would be pleased to see them added to:-

それで 《其れで》 (conj) (uk) and; thereupon; because of that; (P) 
それでいて (conj) and yet; despite (all) that; (P)
それでこそ 《其れでこそ》 (n) (uk) quintessential point; what one expects; Attaboy!
それでは(其れでは)(P); それじゃ(其れじゃ)(P) 《其れでは(P); 其れじゃ》 (exp) (1) (uk) well then ...; (2) in that situation; in which case; (P)
それでも 《其れでも》 (conj) (uk) but (still); and yet; nevertheless; even so; notwithstanding; (P)</upd_detl>

<upd_detl>Hi, the layout of this entry seems to suggest that the spelling of これ as 此れ in これこそ or elsewhere is usual. Actually, I don't think I have ever seen it before. Should this entry be reformatted as a "usually kana" entry?</upd_detl>
