Polish Articles

In English articles are words that combine with a noun to indicate the type of reference being made by the noun. Generally articles specify the grammatical definiteness of the noun. Examples are "the, a, and an". However that doesn't exist in Polish.

Grammar Tips:

English has one define article (the) and two undefined articles (a/an). In Polish there aren’t any articles, because the noun’s gender and singular/plural forms are made by the suffixes.


Here are some examples:

the bookksiążka
the booksksiążki
a bookksiążka

some bookskilka książek
few booksniewiele książek

As you can see from the example above, the structure of no articles in Polish takes a logical pattern.
