dc.description.abstract Semantic and pragmatic definiteness seems to be universal, while its grammatical realization is a language specific property. This grammatical property may change in a language documented long enough for a diachronic investigation. The Old Hungarian article is a fully grammaticalized element functioning as to encode definiteness on a syntactic level; its more restricted use can be due to the fact that definite article covers a smaller ground in the semantic and pragmatic field of definiteness at this stage of the language. A systematic investigation of the first written sources of considerable length (Old Hungarian manuscripts from the end of the 14th century and the first half of the 15th century), more precisely, the regular absence of definite articles, as well as the careful classifi cation of the determinerless noun phrases with definite interpretation reveals an early synchronic system that is significantly different from today’s organization of determination. Old Hungarian defi nite article only appears when there is no other device to identify the NP reference, and is banned in the following cases: nouns with special lexical properties (proper names), genericity, modification by demonstratives (encoding directly accessible reference), possessedness (when the referent of the noun is identified via its relation to the referent of the possessor). Argumenthood is a further factor influencing syntactic determination: articles can be dispensed with in case of noun phrases that do not function as arguments of verbs. Expansion in article use, of course, did not happen simultaneously in the above listed contexts in later manuscripts: according to my observations, generic noun phrases are the first to receive definite articles.
