    article...

    s1. The chef tastes (the) broth everyday.

    Sometimes, I can't tell the usage of the definite articles.

    The chef tastes the broth everyday. or The chef tastes broth everyday.>

    He makes broth everyday and he taste it everyday.

    But, each broth he makes is not the same broth.

    So the definite article may not be used.

    On the other hand, if he tastes a particular kind of broth everyday, we may be able to use the definite article.

    I don't know whether what I'm thinking is right or not.

    Thanks in advance.^^

    "The chef tastes the broth every day." This is correct, it means that he tastes the broth he has made that day. In this context "every" and "day" are two seperate words.
