Student or Learner
I would like to know if in the following sentence there is a mistake (show the article in bold), I am thinking about the indefinite article 'a', maybe the article an is the real word that will have write the writer of this article.
'Mullah Baradar had been a important contact for the Afghans for years, Afghan officials said.'
I have just read this in The New York Time, I believe it's a typography error but I prefer to have your opinion about this case.
Thanks in advance for your replies.
