Menu 1. Definite Articles 2. Indefinite Articles
In Ciric, the indefinite and definite articles must agree with gender, number, and grammatical case. There are 2 genders: Masculine, and Feminine. And there are 4 grammatical cases: Nominative, Accusative, Genitive, and Prepositional.

[edit] [top]Definite Articles

Here we will start off with the definite articles: De and Da.


Here are some sentence examples of indefinite articles:

Masculine: DeFeminine: Da
Nom: DeNom: Da
Acc: DerAcc: Dar
Gen: DesGen: Das
Prep: DiePrep: Dia


Here are some sentences using the definite articles with the different grammatical forms:
De miescach taltech umer armschocer.
Da friesca knuech der mullerer.
Da tautascha eff des pfafers.
Esch seim a die housævie itcheng.

Something to note: The definite articles De and Da will contract if the noun starts with a vowel. This only happens with the nominative and prepositional forms of De and Da. For example:

D'armschoc = the artichoke
D'anga = the life
D'agchelt = the action
D'unglafga = the noun

[edit] [top]Indefinite Articles

For indefinite articles, Ciric has two: Um and Uma

Masculine: UmFeminine: Uma
Nom: UmNom: Uma
Acc: UmerAcc: Umar
Gen: UmsGen: Umas

Here are some examples of indefinite articles being used:
Uma tautascha caullgæm umer mullerer saßach.
