A word placed before nouns, or nouns preceded by adjectives, to point them out and limit their signi-fication; usually called the definite article, but is really a demonstrative adjective, and only a softened form of that; used before adjectives in the comparative and superlative degrees. Note.-In poetic compositions, the e in often cut of before a vowel thus, th, and also the he, as t'other.
