32.235 The Article in Various Constructions

Make sure you read Croy section 235 where he shows how the definite article can be used to turn almost any part of speech in Greek into a substantive (i.e., a noun). We can do this in English as well. For example, when we say "A person with common sense lives in the here and now," the word "the" is being used to turn the adverbial phrase "here and now" into a kind of noun. The same thing happens in Greek, where the article can be used with adverbial phrases, prepositional phrases, etc. Croy has some good examples here. Make sure you read and understand them.
