Why does it seem like Portuguese uses definite articles more often than other languages like Spanish and English?

Nayane Bremm
Because we do use more articles than other languages in general. In a lot of languages we don't use articles before proper names. In Portuguese we do. We also use the definite articles before Possessive adjectives. - (A) minha tia fala comigo. This one is not a rule, but we often use it before them. *** in some states in Brazil, people don't always use the articles before proper names.
