    are there any specific rules for when to use "a" "an" "the"? I know "an" marks a noun starting with a vowel, what else?

    No, not quite. “An” is used before a noun beginning with a vowel sound (rather than a vowel in spelling). Here are some examples:

    A house
    An hour
    An uncle
    A unit
    A European
    A one-way street
