Articles can be definite or indefinite.
In both cases, as in the other Romance languages of the Iberian Peninsula, articles have two genders: masculine and feminine. Number can be singular or plural.
The most general paradigm for the definite article is:
- masculine, singular: o
- feminine, singular: a
- masculine, plural: os
- feminine, plural: as
Gender and number must agree with that of the noun (and adjective).
- O mesache ye en a borda = The boy is in the shepherd's hut.
- As mesachas son en o lugar = The girls are in the village.
