What Are Articles?


All about article

Articles are words that define a noun as specific or unspecific. Consider the following examples:

Fig : Nature of a forest.
After the long day, the cup of tea tasted particularly good.

By using the article the, we’ve shown that it was one specific day that was long and one specific cup of tea that tasted good.

After a long day, a cup of tea tastes particularly good.

By using the article a, we’ve created a general statement, implying that any cup of tea would taste good after any long day.

Some other examples are:

  • Please give me the hammer.
  • Please give me the red hammer; the blue one is too small.
  • Please give me the nail.
  • Please give me the large nail; it’s the only one strong enough to hold this painting.
  • Please give me the hammer and the nail.
