Definition of Articles

Articles are a major part of English grammar. Articles are usually used to modify a noun (based on the noun type). Putting together, articles can act as adjectives as they define the noun; however, articles are used instead to refer to nouns.

There are three types of articles – A, An, The. The three articles are not interchangeable and are used for different types of situations. Articles are also used to refer to nouns in both writing and speaking. Articles in English grammar are used to qualify a noun as well as define whether it is countable or non-countable.

There are certain rules for solving questions related to articles. Check out some of them below to get an insight about the same:

  • Article ‘A’ goes with singular nouns only that starts with a constant sound. The explicit individuality of the nouns should not be recognized to the reader.
  • Article ‘The’ is used to define a specific individuality or category of the noun. It is important to know that ‘the’ can be used with countable and non-countable nouns along with singular and plural nouns.
  • Article ‘an’ goes with nouns starting with a vowel sound.
  • Common nouns always take an article with them. So, here your cue to use articles wherever there is a common noun.
  • There are words which starts a vowel such as a university, European, etc. but the starting sound is of constant that is “yu” where “an” is not an appropriate choice. “A” or “the” can be used for the same. Same goes with words starting with a constant but with a sound of vowel, such as honest, MBA, SUV, etc. As these start with a vowel sound, “an” will be used before them.
