How is definiteness expressed in languages with no definite article, clitic or affix? - Linguistics Stack Exchange
All languages, as far as we know, do something to mark information status. Basically this means that when you refer to an X, you have to do something to indicate the answer to questions like:
1. Do you have a specific X in mind?
2. If so, you think your hearer is familiar with the X you're talking about?
3. If so, have you already been discussing that X for a while, or is it new to the conversation?
4. If you've been discussing the X for a while, has it been the main topic of conversation?

Question #2 is more or less what we mean by "definiteness."

But there are lots of other information-status-marking strategies that don't directly involve definiteness marking. For example:

The Compositional Nature of Vim - Ismail Badawi
1976 was a good year for text editors. At MIT, Richard Stallman and Guy Steele wrote the first version of Emacs. And over at Berkeley, Bill Joy wrote vi (though it wouldn’t be called that for a few years yet).
It’s reductionist to say that these two editors were each built around one big idea, but what the hell, let’s be reductionist. Because what stands out today, looking at modern editors like Sublime Text and Atom, is how Emacs’ big idea has been thoroughly learned — and how vi’s big idea hasn’t.

Lexical differential highlighting instead of syntax highlighting
Rather than syntax, use lexical words to highlight differences. The more similar the items, the more different their colors, to contrast and prevent mistaken identity in syntax.

Why is Google Translate so bad for Latin? A longish answer. : latin
> All it does its correlate sequences of up to five consecutive words in texts that have been manually translated into two or more languages.
That sort of system ought to be perfect for a dead language, though. Dump all the Cicero, Livy, Lucretius, Vergil, and Oxford Latin Course into a database and we're good.

We're not exactly inundated with brand new Latin to translate.
> Dump all the Cicero, Livy, Lucretius, Vergil, and Oxford Latin Course into a database and we're good.
What makes you think that the Google folks haven't done so and used that to create the language models they use?
> That sort of system ought to be perfect for a dead language, though.
Perhaps. But it will be bad at translating novel English sentences to Latin.

c++ - Pointer to class data member "::*" - Stack Overflow
[ed.: First encountered in emil-e/rapidcheck (gen::set).]

Is this checked statically? That is, does the compiler allow me to pass an arbitrary value or does it check that every passed pointer to member pFooMember is created using &T::*fooMember? I think it's feasible to do that?
