    general reference

    A) In some strucutures, a noun may not be the subject of a verb that comes just after it.

    Although there is a defining that-clause follows the "verb" above, we still use the indefinite article 'a' instead of 'the'.

    Could you tell me the reason, please?

    Sometimes, a defined or restritive noun does not mean that the noun is specific.
