    Capitalization.
    No article with a countable noun.
    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.

    Hey Barb_D: Not sure what you mean in this example by "no article with a countable noun".

    There is no article. The countable noun needs one.

    I didn't mean to say "There should be no article," but rather "It lacks the required article."

    It's okay. When I saw what my hair looked like in the humidity yesterday, I scared myself! (Different causes, same effect.)
