The articles

An article is a modifier placed before a noun to limit, individualize or give definiteness or indefiniteness to the noun phrase. Greek has two articles, definite and indefinite. Both are declined for case and gender. The definite article (‘the’) modifies singular or plural nouns, but the indefinite article (‘a[n]’) modifies singular nouns only and therefore has only singular forms. The use of the articles as part of a noun phrase is discussed in Part III, Section 2.5. Below we give the tables of forms.
