What Are The English Articles?
An article is a word you use in front of a noun to modify it or tell more about it. There are two types of articles: definite and indefinite. An example of an indefinite article is “a.” An example of a definite article would be “the.”
The indefinite article ”an” has a similar use to ”a”. However it is generally used and important to note when the beginning sound of the next word has a vowel sound and is singular. For example: “an” hour , an elephant or an orange.
When do you use the indefinite article ”a” ?
You use the indefinite article “a” when you want to talk about a noun without specifying which of those things you mean. For example: If you want to take a taxi you can use the indefinite article “a” because it is not specific, so you say, I will take “a” taxi. It is used when the next word begins with a consonant sound.
