    A, an , and the

    Nouns are, either countable (one horse , six horses , three girls) or uncountable (Sugar. ,coal , butter) . Countable nouns take I and An ( An goes with nouns beginning with vowel sounds ) to show that the noun is singular and. undefined. A. boy - is any undefined boy . An apple is any undefined apple.

    When we form the plural of countable nouns, we drop An or A (A boy) in the singular becomes( boys) in the plural, An apple becomes (apples)

    A cowboy lives in America.
    We get milk from a cow
    A soldier salutes an officer.

    The: countable nouns in the singular form take A or An before them to show that they are:
    a- singular
    b- undefined

    Plural countable nouns drop A or An also to show that they are undefined. When nouns, either countable or uncountable, singular or plural, are defined, we put The before them. (The man, The men, The sugar).

    The sugar Is sweet and the coffee is bitter.
    The sun was In the sky nearly all The time.
