If I mention these children and these trees, how should I use the articles? "Children are playing in the shadow of the trees" or "Children are playing in shadow of trees" (sounds awkward) or "Children are playing in shadow of the trees"?
God, I haven't finished my thought, sorry! I wanted to say "If I mention these children and these trees for the first time and they are not definite". Should I still use "the"? Sorry for misinforming you
Hopscotch, using interlacing shadows as the markings. But this is pretty unlikely - I only mention it to show how 'shadow' refers to a particular visual object.
