Purdue OWL: How to Use Articles (a/an/the)
The definite article is used before singular and plural nouns when the noun is specific or particular. The signals that the noun is definite, that it refers to a particular member of a group. For example:
cannibalize , recycle , reuse
The Latin word ūtī, meaning “to use,” “to possess,” or “to enjoy,” and its form ūsus give us the roots ut and us. Words from the Latin ūtī have something to do with use. To us e is to possess and enjoy. To ab us e is to use something incorrectly or unfairly. Anything us ual is commonly used by many people. A ut ensil is a tool that is used for a particular purpose, especially for eating or cooking.
"A/an" is used to refer to a non-specific or non-particular member of the group. For example, "I would like to go see a movie." Here, we're not talking about a specific movie. We're talking about any movie. There are many movies, and I want to see any movie. I don't have a specific one in mind.
There is a little confusion on how to use the words use to and used to . One reason for the confusion is that it is sometimes used as a verb, and sometimes used as an adjective. The other reason is because it seems like the tense changes. It's really quite simple when you look at it.
"Do you want to go to the grocery store, or would you prefer to go to the mall?" →
"Do you want to go to the grocery store / would you prefer to go to the mall?"
"I was happy to see the policeman who saved my cat!" Here, we're talking about a particular policeman. Even if we don't know the policeman's name, it's still a particular policeman because it is the one who saved the cat.More pictures«How to use inno gialuron».
