Usually not with highways.Originally Posted by kuoching
"KAKA highway runs parallel at the south of the property"
do we need to add "THE" in front of the KAKA highway?
In BE I think we'd usually say "The KAKA highway", except of course we have motorways and main roads, not highways.
I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.
Interesting. We would say: Take Sunrise Highway east for 6 miles; then take Grand Central Parkway north. In a shortened form, we would say: Take the Sunrise then the Grand Central.Originally Posted by Red5
Of course there are exceptions. We take the Long Island Expressway and the West Side Highway, probably because they have place names in the title.
'Highway' is not a BE word. We do use the definite article with motorways, so I suppose it gets transferred.
I m still not very clear about this. Let me post 1 more question,Originally Posted by tdol
"Windows are of glass panel"...do we to put "The" in front of the Windows?
It depends- if we are talking about windows in general, then we wouldn't use the artcile. If we were talking about, say, a speciific building, we would.
How if we are to describe a house in a report? to use "The windows" or "Windows are of ...."
It still depends. If the report deals with particlar windows, one should use "the windows". If the report deals with unspecified windows, the article might be dropped.Originally Posted by kuoching
Example 1: The living room windows are large and face east.
Example 2: Windows were installed in the kitchen during a recent renovation.
