    "The" as a Definite Article

    Can "the" be considered, in today's usage, adeterminer or a definite article?

    Thank you kindly.

    Re: "The" as a Definite Article

    Welcome to the forum, Ima. 'The' is the definite article (there is only one in English). Definite and indefinite articles are both determiners.
