Student or Learner
I know the basic rule wich says that if a noun is in plural we use either no article or definite article (the) according to whether the noun is known to listner (he knows what we are talking about) or not. But I am confused with applying this rule in lyrics. I have seen lyrics where articles are not used so strictly according to grammar rules. And here comes my problem. My friend, who is not so good in english asked my to correct her lyrics and right there first two verses go like:
I walk the streets
And I cross the roads
and what I would like to know is that what would happen if changed them to
I walk streets
And I cross roads
what difference in meaning would this change cause?
Hi mikko 4
I´m student too. I think you can use:
Definitively you need to use the article to define which streets you are walking over and to know which roads you are crossing over...
