A definite noun is a noun which is specific and identifiable in a given context as opposed to entities which are indefinite (cf indefinite pronoun). Usually a noun is made definite by the use of the article, but there are many other ways of making a noun definite. A noun is definite:
- If it is articular;
- If it is a proper noun.
- If it is in construct with an articular noun;
- If it is in construct with a proper noun, more;
- If it has a pronominal suffix;
