    Question about articles

    Hi,

    I`ve always had trouble with articles,so i have a simple question about their usage.
    If i post a message in a forum and want to give an example,type a translation,copy and paste lyrics etc,would it be correct to say:
    Here`s an example/a translation/a song:.....

    or

    Here`s the example/the translation/the song:....

    If it was in the plural,would it be "Here are the examples/the translations/the songs" or "Here are examples/translations/songs"?

    Actually, both of your examples are correct. You are free to choose from either one.
