Dear Friends,

Do we need an article in 'in such a? case'? For example, suppose that I want to make a birthday cake and I did not get the ingredients for it and I say:

In such a? case I will buy a cake.

Thank you.

Hello, Csika.

Tom: I can't bake the cake for the party.

Sue: Why not?

Tom: I forgot to buy the ingredients.

Sue: Well, in that case, just go buy one at the bakery.

Thank you

Hello, Csika.

(1) I have great news!!!

(2) Please type in "in such a case vs. in such case" in the

search box at this website. The first two threads from 2003

and 2005 will give you a detailed answer.

(3) Thank you for asking that question. I, too, learned something

this morning.

Thank you
