What are articles?

What are articles?

A or An and The are usually called Articles.

They are really demonstrative Adjectives.

* A or An is called the indefinite article because it is used when we don’t speak of any particular or definite person or thing;as,

I saw a boy in the bazaar.

I found an umbrella lying in the room.

* The is called the definite article, because it is used when we speak of some particular person or thing; as,

This is the man whom I saw yesterday.

This is the beggar who pretended to be dumb.

  • the freckles on my face
  • the alligator in the pond
  • the breakfast burrito on my plate
