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:

  1. masculine, singular: o
  2. feminine, singular: a
  3. masculine, plural: os
  4. feminine, plural: as

Gender and number must agree with that of the noun (and adjective).

  1. O mesache ye en a borda = The boy is in the shepherd's hut.
  2. As mesachas son en o lugar = The girls are in the village.
