Why is there the definite article before a name? I understand it is a gramatical rule, but whats the background? Thanks
having studied classical Greek, I imagine it started there since they used the article before names way back then too. Thus far, ancient Greek and modern Greek are surprisingly similar.
I was marked wrong. Troi is present tense. So really the grammatically correct way to say is 'Eleni is eating an apple.' The direct translation is 'Eleni is eating the apple.'
Exactly! Just wanted to bring it up since I was marked wrong. I'm not sure how to upload screenshots to show you unfortunately.

If you typed "Eleni is eating an apple" it was rejected because of the wrong article.
