Aren't definite and indefinite articles just "the, a, etc."? That's what I got from what I'm studying. I guess I didn't know what they were because they're implied in Latin, not a separate word. :oops: :oops: :oops: right?

Yes, that is absolutely correct. "the" is definite, "a(n)" indefinite.

And Greek has no indefinite article (much like Old English).

And (correct me if I am wrong) much like modern English, modern Greek has an indefinite article.
