Wenedyk - The article

From now on, I'll regularly be posting about Venedian grammar.

Part one - the article - will be very short.
Wenedyk has no articles. If Latin didn't have them, and the Slavic languages
don't have them, then why would Wenedyk be supposed to have articles?

Sometimes it strikes me as weird, though. Vulgar Latin shows nothing but a
rudimentary tendency towards using demonstrative pronouns like articles, and it
must have been much later that they became common. Nevertheless, every single
Romance language has them (and most Romance conlangs too).

My next post on Wenedyk will be about nouns. I hope I'll manage to do it today.
