    in such a? case

    Dear Friends,

    Do we need an article in 'in such a? case'? For example, suppose that I want to make a birthday cake and I did not get the ingredients for it and I say:

    In such a? case I will buy a cake.

    Thank you.

    Csika

    Hello, Csika.

    Tom: I can't bake the cake for the party.

    Sue: Why not?

    Tom: I forgot to buy the ingredients.

    Sue: Well, in that case, just go buy one at the bakery.

    Thank you

    Hello, Csika.

    (1) I have great news!!!

    (2) Please type in "in such a case vs. in such case" in the

    search box at this website. The first two threads from 2003

    and 2005 will give you a detailed answer.

    (3) Thank you for asking that question. I, too, learned something

    this morning.

    Thank you
