Basically, an article is an adjective. Like adjective articles modify nouns.
There are two articles in English- The and A/An. ‘The’ is used to refer to specific or particular nouns, ‘a/an’ is used to modify no specific nouns. We call ‘The‘ definite article and ‘A/An‘ the indefinite article.
For example, if I say, “Let’s read the book, “I mean a specific book. If I say, “let’s read a book” then I mean any book rather than a specific book.
Let’s look at each typesof article a little more closely and Find out what is an article exactly.
TAKE A LOOK ON THIS INFOGRAPHIC
TYPES OF ARTICLE:
There are two types of article. And those are:
‘A’ and ‘An’ these are indefinite article.
‘A’ and ‘An’ signal that the noun modified is indefinite, referring to any number of a group. For example,
“My daughter really wants a dog for Christmas”. This refers to any dog. We don’t know which dog because we haven’t found the dog yet.
“When I was at the zoo, I saw an elephant?” There are probably several elephants at the zoo, but there is only one, we are talking about here.
Remember one thing, using ‘a’ or ‘an’ depends on the sound that begins the next word. So…
