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"?
