Abstract The article deals with the category of definiteness/indefiniteness formation origins in the language. The subject is represented with the examples from several isolated languages which are known to conserve their initial state. The concept of the category of definiteness/indefiniteness as well as the main ways of its expression in the language have been considered. The ancient state signs of the category of definiteness/indefiniteness are discovered and the material similarity of the deictics (-i, -u, -a) in the isolated languages compared to modern ways of its expression is noted. The structure of the category of definiteness/indefiniteness in wolof language has been analyzed.
