You probably thought that definite articles
aren't used in Norwegian, but when the
noun is definite and there is an adjective in front of it,
then you need
it. In other words: You can't say "store
husene", you need an article in front of it.
And the articles
The article is placed in front of the adjective. The example with the big house was so good that we can complete
it. We use the suffixes from the table from the previous page
(and since the adjective is next to the noun in these examples,
we do add the definite suffix as well):
||A big house
||The big house
||The big houses
This is called "double definition", because both
the article and the suffix tell us that this noun is definite.
And to repeat: double definition is
used only when an adjective (or a numeral) is present, not otherwise.
Together, the article, the adjective and
the noun form a so-called noun phrase.
