Definite Artlcle: Good Resource or Chart?

Unread postby clarsach » Tue Aug 16, 2016 5:58 pm

Is there a good, single source for all the definite articles, and which to use in which case, gender, plural/singular, initial letters, and so on?

I'm slowly compiling one from multiple sources, but surely I'm re-inventing the wheel?

The back pages of the 'Essential Gaelic' dictionary have them presented in the most intuitive fashion imo (exactly the hierarchy you have them listed).

Other views of them would probably be useful in certain contexts but for an overall understanding I think that's the way.

edit: like this guy's done, except it's a wee bit messy looking

We also have a list sorted by patterns rather than by case/gender:

It always helps to look at them from different angles to sort them out in your head.
