Student or Learner
kindly tell me when to use a,an,the,zero articles.Iam comiting this countless times.
Hoping the experienced and challenging reply will come to me.
Also tell me the best material for understanding ARTICLES.
Thank U to all in advance.
First of all i would like to thank U for replying to my post.
Please tell me the normal/neutral reasons for knowing when to use articles and without articles
In general, a/an/the is used in countable nouns and no article is used in uncountable nouns. A/an is used in singular countable nouns and the is used in singular or plural countable nouns.But there are many exceptions in using them.
Here are some examples:
Hair is uncountable noun,( not use article before it)
But, there is a hair in my soup.
Similarly, water is uncountable noun, (not use article before it)
But, there are river water,sea water, rain water, underground water and so on, and these waters are cold.
I think this help you.
Dear friend,thanks u r kindful towards me and helping. Shall i know when u started learning all the english grammar and when u joined this Forum.
An important point is to read, to write, to speak and to listen.
If you want to write,write.
If you want to read, read.
If you want to speak, speak.
If you want to listen, listen.
Have a good time.
