The Definite Article.—The definite article ὁ, ἡ, τό (stems ὁ-, ἁ_-, το-) is thus declined:

a. The definite article is a weakened demonstrative pronoun, and is still used as a demonstrative in Homer ( cross1100).

b. τά_ (especially) and ταῖν, the feminine forms in the dual, are very rare in the authors, and are unknown on Attic prose inscriptions of the classical period.
