Title: The origin of the cliticness of the west Germanic definite article: the case of Beowulf
Author: Janez Orešnik
Description: The present paper is mainly concerned with the definite ar­ ticle of Beowulf. The literature about the West Germanic definite article has always allotted a prime place among the old Germanic texts to this poem: it is undisputably archaic (Kuhn 1933: 105, D. Hofmann 1959:189), and suitable for statistical genera­lisations. Its more than 6,000 hemistichs contain about 300 in­stances of the. definite article (Lichtenheld 1872:332).
