The first aim of this paper is to make a thorough description of the use of nominals as well as of the use of the definite determiner in both Souletin (the most eastern dialect of Basque) and Standard Basque (plus the rest of Basque dialects). Then, assuming that Souletin is a previous stage of Standard Basque (cf. Michelena 1964; Camino 2014; cf. also Manterola 2012), the main aim of this paper is to explain how Basque historically moves from a situation in which bare nouns (BNs) are allowed (in some restricted argument positions and only in Souletin) to a situation in which BNs are not allowed in argument position (Standard Basque).
