Interested in Language
A while ago I learned (here?) in these forums (here?) when to use the and when not.
However, I have another question and in order not to make it more complicated than it is, I'm going to choose a simple sentence.
The apple is good for our health.
The the is unnecessary because usually every apple is good for our health.
Now the problem:
If I just remove the the, the sentence sounds choppy to me.
Apple is good for our health.
There is the possibility to use the a/an.
An apple is good for our health.
Now it confuses me because it sounds like "One apple is good", "two are bad".
(A/An = one.)
What's the best sentence?
P.S: Usually I would have started the sentence with "Eating", but I wanted to write it a bit different.
