Finally, we have the articles! The definite article is the word 'the'. It limits the meaning of a noun to one particular thing. For example:
• Give me the ticket.
The indefinite article is either 'a' or 'an'. It is 'a' when it precedes a word that begins with a consonant, and 'an' when it precedes a word that starts with a vowel! The indefinite article indicates that a noun refers to a general idea rather than a particular thing!
• Can you pass me an apple?
• Should I bring a bottle of wine?
