Datapoint Palenquero/Position of definite article in the noun phrase

Palenquero has no definite articles in the sense that the article is not necessary (obligatory) to express definiteness, as context generally suffices. There is no form for the singular, but there is a form for the plural, which is ma (plural marker). When ma is present, it is always interpreted as definite. For details, see Schwegler (2007).
