What is the rule to use an article in case we come up with a person’s name and profession? I understand that is there is just one of a kind, like a queen or a president, we have to say:
The president Lincoln promised etc.
We met the Queen Elizabeth in the zoo yesterday.
Now we have a situation when we talk about an ordinary teacher:
Teacher Johnson asked my parents to come and see him.
Is no-article in this case correct? I am asking because in English books I read phrases like:
In 1956, the journalist John Johnson wrote etc.
Why suddenly “the” here and not “a” or nothing at all?
Thank you in advance.
I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....
Great! Thanks, my friend!
