in the street, in an street?
Hi, there. came to here for your help. First, I will give you an example sentence.
" Kissing would be a little awkward in an elevator, but I 'd certainly kiss my girlfriend in the street."
The commentor didn't pick up the specific one about elevator in the above, because he or she didn't use 'the'. But the commentor used the about street.
And, When I recall sentences that I have read so far, I can't remember something like 'in an street'. But I only remember 'in the street'.
the usage of 'street' in sentences, is it like 'in the air', 'in the morning' that has to be used with 'the'?
Please explain it to me.
Re: in the street, in an street?
Quick note - it would be "a street" not "an street" because "street" does not start with a vowel sound.
This is another example of phrases that are used that aren't always logical. When we say "in the street" (or "on the street" in the US), we don't usually mean a specific street. We are just referring to "somewhere outside where people travel."
The average man in the street = any regular person you are likely to meet
