Could a count noun immediately follow the phrase "depend on" without using an article (a, an, the)?
i mean a SINGULAR count noun.
But what about "vary with"?
"depend on venue", "vary with venue", .... According to several dictionaries, "venue" is COUNTABLE, unless.... they are wrong or incomplete.
"While it does not specify training methods, Cal/OSHA says that evaluation of compliance will also depend on manner of presentation, and that enforcement personnel will quiz employees in assessing whether an employer has made a good faith effort to convey essential content."
"manner", in this context, is countable. I found the above paragraph from some newsletter.
