I am confused Ė should there be articles here?
1. Children, donít make (a) noise.
2. We are used to (a) constant traffic noise.
Could there be 2 versions with different meanings?
In British English, I think it would be fairly normal to use 'a noise' in the first example, but not in the second.
Thank you, Mike and tdol.
"noise" is both countable (will take the indefinite article) and uncountable(without the indefinite article) , the meaning may change depending on how it is used. check out "online dictionaries" in the reference section of this site.
