Albanian articles are words that combine with a noun to indicate the kind of referrals being created by the noun. Usually articles specify the lexical definiteness of the noun. Illustrations are “the, a, and an”.

Grammar Tips:

Definite Article:

Unlike English, which has only one definite article “the”, Albanian has endings:
i (masc. sing., libri (the book)
u (masc. sing.) shoku (the friend)
a (fem. sing.) vajza (the girl)
ja (fem. sing.) lulja (the flower)

Indefinite Article:

While we have articles: (a / an / some) in English as Indefinite articles, we also have një / disa (ca) in Albanian.
(a, an) are used in English, you need to use (një)  to say the equivalent in Albanian.

Një (masc. sing.), një telefon (a phone)
Një (masc. sing.) një makinë (a car)
Disa/ ca (masc. pl.) disa / ca telefonë (some phones) it’s same here:
disa and ca it has the same meaning (some), and is for both genders in pl.
Disa / ca (fem. pl.) disa /ca makina (some cars)
e.g.: Ca librat janë në shkollë. (Some books are at school)
