    Re: A or An?

    it should be a URL since D full form is universal resource locator and the word universal begins with the sound "yoo" , that means d beginning contains a consonant
    So it should be A URL. I am sure i have made ur doubts clear!

    Re: A or An?

    The U sounds like a YOU, as if it were a consonant. Therefore, you must say a URL. Cheers,

    examples to help you- An Umbrella
    A universal language
    An unimportant event

    read the sentences and listen to the difference in the sounds of the words such as (YU) as in uniform or (A) as in up.
    Now i understand..

    Re: A or An?

    "An URL" is only correct because the pronounciation starts by the sound 'U' a vowel sound.
