    Articles

    I know that we using article "the" when we're talking about something specific.

    I know that we using article "an" before word of first letter "a, e, i, o or u".

    But that is all I know. Can you write me here more rules of usage.
    For example, before what letters we using article "a"?
    And, please, don't give me the links. I want your definitions.

    Re: Articles

    I know that we using article "an" before word of first letter "a, e, i, o or u".
    We use an before a vowel sound, not simply the letter:
    an egg/a European
    an umbrella/ a university
