Unit 7                              Grammar

• Articles / countable and uncountable nouns / quantifiers

(Indefinite article )

There are two indefinite articles in English: 'a'and'an'. 'An' is used before vowel sounds.

Use Example
Singular countable nouns (when we are not being specific \ or when we mention something for the first time) There's a good film on TV tonight.

WATCH OUT

• Whether we use 'an' or 'a' depends on the sound, not the spelling.

The news is on TV in an hour.

The news is on TV in a hour.

Being in a film was a unique experience for me.

Being in a film was an unique cxpcricncc for me.

 

( Definite article )

There is one definite article in English: 'the'.

Use Example
Singular countable nouns  (when we are being specific) Where's the DVD you were talking about?
Singular countable nouns (when we are talking generally) The radio seemed amazing to people at first.
Plural countable nouns (when we are being specific) I didn't believe the rumours about the prime minister.
Uncountable nouns (when we are being specific) I followed the advice my lawyer gave me.

WATCH OUT

• The way we say'the'changes depending on the sound at the start of the next word.

Before a consonant sound (the media, the USA, the programme), we pronounce it [Də].

Before a vowel sound (the announcer, the actor, the editor), we pronounce it[Dı].

• We often use 'the' when we are talking about something there is only one of.

the sky, the sun, the moon, the Prince of Wales, the North Pole, the World Cup

 

( Zero article )

We often don't use an article at all.This is sometimes called the zero article.

Use Example
Plural countable nouns (when we are talking generally) Journalists often face dangerous situations.
Uncountable nouns (when we are talking generally) News travels fast these days.

 

( Articles in phrases and expressions )

Notice how we use articles in the following phrases and expressions. Many of these are examples of general categories. For example: 'the River Thames' means that we use'the'for all rivers.

Use Example
Time definite article: in the 1990s, in (the) summer, in the morning zero article: in 2008, in June, on Friday, at night
People and work indefinite article: have a job, work as a... definite article: the queen, the principal, the president, the French zero article: become president, go to work, be at work, have work to do, he's French.
Places definite article: the Alps, the Atlantic Ocean, the River Thames, the Earth, the Arctic, the USA, the UK, the Cyclades zero article: Mount Everest, Paris, America, Mars/Venus/Jupiter etc, Oxford Street, Lake Superior, Crete
Entertainment and sport definite article: the media, on the radio, play the guitar, go to the cinema, watch (the) TV zero article: listen to music, on television, play tennis/football etc

Health indefinite article: have a cold/headache/cough definite article: have (the) flu/measles zero article: have toothache
Public buildings definite article: the bank, the tax office, go to the hospital/prison (as a visitor) zero article: go to hospital/prison/church (as a patient/prisoner/worshipper)

WATCH OUT!• Speakers of American English do not usually use hospital without an article.

US: The ambulance took Simon to the hospital.

UK: The ambulance took Simon to hospital.

 

( Countable and uncountable nouns )

Type Example
Countable nouns •     Use a, the, some, many •     Use a singular or plural verb  I want to be a journalist. Where is the newspaper? There are some good articles in the paper. How manychannels do you get?
Uncountable nouns •     Use the, some, much •     Use a singular verb Did you hear the news? Some important news has just come in. How much information do we have about it? Your advice was very useful.

Common uncountable nouns:

WATCH OUT!• Most uncountable nouns are singular, but a few are plural. These include clothes,scissors,jeans, spectacles, trousers, groceries, etc. With these words, we use a plural verb.

• Some nouns are countable with one meaning and uncountable with another meaning.

Do you think you could bring me a clean glass? (countable)
