Probability of Article Replacement?

I asked a question in my "doubt" post, which nobody's tried to answere yet.
Working on the theory that this is more due to it being buried in a long and
rambling post, I'll just re-ask:

How probable is it for a language that has a definite article to replace it
with a form derived from a demonstrative? Are any such examples known from
real-world languages?
