- This article is about a word in the Belter Creole language.
- definite article ("the")
The definite article is used before a person's name in some cases, e.g. da Mila → "Miller"
It appears that Belter displays definiteness agreement, similar to that found in Greek or Hebrew. That is, when a noun is marked with da, any adjectives applied to that noun must also be so marked:
- livit Belta "Belter life" → da livit da Belta "the Belter life"
- setara mali "little star" → da setara da mali "the little star"
