Dya ũa a kumbina di we uvôdô na ose. [...] Mo Têtuuga vê meze xyadu, ê mêsê pa ê kaba meze pimyô.
One day, they agreed to go to a party in heaven. [...] As Turtle saw how full of food the table was, he wanted to finish the table first.
This example shows that, in Principense, a noun in an associative context is not modified by a definite article, but that the noun (or the noun phrase) is bare. The noun meze 'table', which has not been previously introduced into discourse, refers associatively to uvôdô 'party'. Thus, and according to the APiCS definition, Principense has no definite article.
