Is it OK to put the article "a" before "dinner"?
EG. He threw a dinner at the swank hotel.

I've just had breakfast/dinner/lunch/supper,
......but you'd also say,
I've had a delicious breakfast etc.
.....and you'd say, "She had cancer" in the same way that you'd say, "She had influenza/ measles/ chickenpox etc". Unfortunately, however, you'd say, "She had a cold"!
Sorry if that's not helped much!
Thanks it's a bit clearer.
What about: I've had A delicious breakfast.
Do we put the "a" because it was this one delicious breakfast and not any other?
