"Use" here is non-count, so you don't need 'a', 'the' or the plural.<Back ground>
I bought a 3G Wi-Fi device that is unlocked for any providers so that I would be able to connect to the internet out side of Japan using a local SIM.
Now, which one of the following sounds fine?
I feel OK with the first one, but I am not sure.
- I bought the device for the international use. No.
- I bought the device for an international use. No.
- I bought the device for international uses. No.
- I bought the device for international use. Yes.
Please teach me the logic how I could play with this situation.
Someone taught me that when I use "the" the audience should know what exactly you are talking about.
Yes, it should be defined already. Your "international use" isn't. What international use?
.. In this case, I am not sure where I am going to go to on the(?) next business trip. Yes.
(What do the two dots mean before the sentence above? Really, I have to know.)
