*****

In English there are two types of articles; definite and indefinite. Articles precede and describe nouns.

THE INDEFINITE ARTICLE

First, let’s look at the indefinite article. There are two; a and an. Indefinite articles are used when when the subject of the noun is not specific, or to introduce something that is not known to the listener. We do not put a/an in front of plural nouns, they can only be used in front of singular nouns. For example;

He always goes to a small place. (We don’t know the place)
We know an old woman. (We don’t know the woman)
I love red shoes! (Plural noun)
A or an?

A is used in front of consonant sounds, and an is used in front of vowel sounds. Usually, this is easy; if the word starts with a consonant, use a, if it starts with a vowel, use an, but remember that we are talking about pronunciation, and not spelling. This is important because sometimes we pronounce consonants as vowels and vice versa. For example;

A dog
An ambulance
A UN decision (UN is pronounced “you-en”, which starts with a consonant)
An SOS message (SOS is pronounced “es-oh-es” which starts with a vowel)

FIXED EXPRESSIONS WITH A/AN

We also use a/an in expressions such as:

Half an hour
Twice a year
a few
€2 a litre
A or one?

You can use a/an or one in front of singular countable nouns to mean the same thing, for example:

We are going to Canada for a year
We are going to Canado for one year
But it’s important to remember that one is a number, and that a/an are articles. So we only use one when we want to emphasise the quantity, for example;

I want one orange juice (not two!!)
Are you staying only one night? (not more than one!!)

THE DEFINITE ARTICLE

Definite articles are used when the subject of the noun has been mentioned before. For example;

The woman takes a small child. I sometimes see the child.
I know a place. It is the big place.
Definite articles are also used when the subject of the noun is already known to the listener. For example;

I never see the small part. (We already know the part)
The right eyes are always different. (We already know the eyes)
As you can see, definite articles can be used in front of singular and plural nouns, and before consonants and vowels.

THE ZERO ARTICLE

In certain specific situations in English we don’t use any article (called the zero article). Usually this is when we talk about concepts, rather than specific things, for example;

I love to play sport (not the sport)
They are afraid of heights (not the heights)
Climate can affect your mood (not the climate)
There are lots of other rules about the zero article, but they will be covered in other classes.

In this lesson, you will learn the rules for using:
– period/full stop (.)
– exclamation mark (!)
– question mark (?)
– comma (,)
– semicolon (;)
– colon (:)
– apostrophe (‘)

Partial transcript:
Hello, and welcome back. In this lesson, I’m going to teach you the rules for using the seven most important punctuation marks, so that you can write correct English without making mistakes. There are exercises within the lesson to help you practice, and as always there is a final quiz at the end of the video. So, if you’re ready, let’s begin. We’re going to start with terminal punctuation. ‘Terminal’ means the end, so terminal punctuation marks are what we use to end a sentence. There are three of these: the period or the full stop, the exclamation mark, and the question mark. Let’s look at the period first. This mark is called the period in American English (AmE means American English), and it’s called the full stop in British English. It is used to mark the end of declarative and imperative sentences. I’ll explain. Here are some examples: “I teach English.” “We had pizza for dinner last night.” “If it rains tomorrow, I’ll bring my umbrella.” These sentences are called declarative sentences because they declare something; they give us some information. And at the end of each sentence, you see a period or full stop. Imperative sentences are commands or requests: “Please don’t feed the animals.” You might see this on a sign in a zoo. “Let me know what time your flight arrives.” “If it rains tomorrow, bring your umbrella.” Let’s now turn to the exclamation mark. It is used to convey strong emotion or feeling. Have a look at these two sentences: Both of them mean the same thing. The first sentence, which ends in a period, has no special feeling or emotion; it’s like saying “I’m really excited about my new job.” Doesn’t sound like I’m very excited, does it? That’s why we use the exclamation mark: “I’m really excited about my new job!” – it tells our reader to read the sentence with emotion – in this sentence, the emotion is excitement. This next sentence: “If you come to work late tomorrow, you’re fired!” Imagine a manger saying this to an employee. So, this expresses anger. In the same way, you can show many other feelings including surprise, joy, fear etc. using the exclamation mark. Now, both of these sentences are declarative, but you can also use the exclamation mark in an imperative sentence like this one: “Johnny, don’t play with your food!” You can imagine a mother saying that angrily to her son. So, it’s a strong or strict command. Another place where we use the exclamation mark is after interjections. Here are a couple of sentences: “Ouch! You just stepped on my foot!” “Wow! What a beautiful house!” Interjections are words like “ouch” and “wow” which are used to express feelings. So, remember: if you want to convey strong emotion in a sentence, put an exclamation mark at the end of it. If there’s no special feeling, just end the sentence with a period. OK, let’s turn now to the third terminal punctuation symbol: the question mark. It is used to mark the end of a question. So, it’s very straightforward: if a sentence is a question, then put a question mark at the end of it. Here are some examples: “What do you do?” “Are we allowed to feed the animals?” “If it rains tomorrow, should I bring my umbrella?” “Are you excited about your new job?” “Who lives in that house?” So, the rule is: if a sentence is a question, it must end with a question mark. Alright, let’s do a small exercise now. There are four sentences on the screen. I want you to add periods or full stops, exclamation marks and question marks where necessary. Stop the video, think about your answers, then play the video and check. OK, here are the answers. If you want, stop the video again, check your answers, then play the video and continue. Before we move on to the next topic, a quick note on spacing. Notice that there is no space between the last letter of a sentence and the terminal punctuation mark. If you put a space there, it’s wrong. But, when you begin a new sentence, you should leave a space after the terminal mark, and you should start the new sentence with a capital letter.

The ADJECTIVES – A, AN, THE – are also called ARTICLES and NOUN MARKERS because they indicate the coming of a NOUN. They are the most common adjectives used in English and have their own special name – ARTICLES. They also signal the coming of a noun so they are often called NOUN MARKERS. A noun is sure to follow one of the articles A, AN, THE because a noun will follow to complete the thought A what? – a CAT; The what? – the CAT; An ? – An animal is going to eat the bird. The articles are also classified as definite and indefinite – the definite article THE indicates that one specific person, place, or thing (noun) is being referred to – The bird is being stalked by the cat. The indefinite articles A, AN can refer to any person, place, or thing within the larger group (a shoe, an orange). Use AN when the noun following begins with a vowel – an animal, an attack, an albatross.

Want to be the smartest one in your class? Want people to listen when you speak and to be able to speak and write with confidence? Want to improve your understanding of foreign languages? Learn these skills the easy way. You can easily learn the proper use of the ADJECTIVES called NOUN MARKERS or ARTICLES.
