English term or phrase: (IN) THE
(IN) THE
E.g. He is in the house. Please contrast with “He is in a house”.
I'm confused because (if I remember rightly) my book translates “in the house” as “në shtëpi”, but I don’t see any definite article there – that would surely be as “në shtëpinë”.

Explanation:
Considering your explanation, this was probably not supposed to be in Eng-Ice.
He is in the house=Hann er (inni) í húsinu. He is in a house=Hann er (inni) í húsi. "Inni" is not really necessary.
