    Re: Articles!

    As far as some misprints are concerned, don't mind it please.
    Actually, I was given the text and I had no time to correct obvious misprints for instance, royAl.
    I'm interested in the articles only.
    As to your question, Plymoth is a town, we don't use any articles with towns and cities, for example, London, Moscow and so on.

    By the way, "
    Why on the first sentence have no article??."
    It's an incorrect question.
    It should be something like that: Why didn't you use an article in the first gap? or at least Why the first gap HAS no article?
    If you don't agree with me, I'll be glad to read your opinion.

    Hi usignolo,

    I'd like to correct your "Why the first gap HAS no article?"

    It would be "Why doesn't the first gap have an article?"

    There are actually a few ways to ask this, but the version above is not one of them.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Hi, Barb_D!

    Shame on me!!!

    The point is that I felt that it was something wrong in my second question. but, unfortunately, I was obsessed with a version andreichikv had written.
    In the future, I'll pay more attention to my comments!
    A thousand thanks!!!
