Are English THE and Arabic AL equivalent?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The present study addresses the different uses of THE and AL as well as their understanding by Arabic-English bilinguals. The results indicate that definiteness is a very salient semantic feature that is acquired with native-like accuracy, while indefiniteness and genericity remain partially acquired, even in the case of advanced learners.
