so, "t" by the end can also be something that adds the "the"?
any rule for that?
'et eple' = 'an apple'
'eplet' = 'the apple'
The 't' in 'eplet' is silent. This rule is only for neuter nouns, masculine will use 'en' and '-en' and feminine 'ei' and '-a'.
Doesn't it make more sense to say "an apple"?
'An apple' is 'et eple'. 'The apple' is 'eplet'
So at the moment we are only dealing with present and continous present.
