    Default Usage of article

    Dear sirs,

    I would like to know the proper usage of article.
    Please correct each of these sentenses if they are wrong:
    1. I like evenging.
    2. I like the evening.
    3. I like the time in the evening.
    4. I like the quiet time in the evening.
    5. I like it in the evening.

    to express that a person enjoys doing many things
    in the evening - like listenning to CDs and reading books.

    Thank you.

    Default Re: Usage of article

    1. I like evening. :( I like evenings. I like the evenings. I like evening.
    2. I like the evening. :D
    3. I like the time in the evening. :D
    4. I like the quiet time in the evening. :D
    5. I like it in the evening. :D

    evenings, without "the", means, all evenings in general)
    the evening(s), with "the", means, a specific time of a day)
