580. Masculine or feminine article with the genitive case.

The masculine or feminine article with the genitive merely shows connexion. “” is commonly son, and “” commonly daughter, but the precise relation is to be determined from the context. The construction is not used in official documents except in the genitive case, in which the article is obligatory.
