Folks should start putting "game" in the thread title. I thought maybe you have been searching for a final thesis subject.

There is only one definite article in English: 'the'.

The: an article used to refer to a specific object/case/item/thing rather than a generic one. The only definite article in English.

There is no the definition of the. There are several definitions of the, therefore the best you could do is a definition of the.

For instance, "enough" is a definition of the but not the definition of the.

Half a bee, philosophically,
must ipso facto half not be.
But half the bee has got to be
vis-a-vis its entity... you see?

But can a bee be said to be
or not to be an entire bee
when half the bee is not a bee
due to some ancient injury...

"It depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is. If the--if he--if 'is' means is and never has been, that is not--that is one thing."

Big Bill Clinton
