Definite: definiteness or state


Definiteness is typically a feature of nouns, adjectives and articles. Definiteness is not an explicitly marked feature in most traditional Uralic descriptions. Many uralic languages feature few ways of expressing definiteness, such as partitive case, which is not marked using Definite feature but just a Case. Definite exists in Hungarian as a feature for indefinite and definite articles, as well as verbal suffixes.
