Articles - a / an

WHEN TO USE -A-
Use a if the next word begins with a consonant SOUND.
This is a sound rule, NOT a spelling rule.
a box
a cat
a university (university begins with a consonant sound)
a unicorn (unicorn begins with a consonant sound)
a European trip (European begins with a consonant sound)
a hotel (hotel begins with a consonant sound)
WHEN TO USE -AN-
Use AN if the next word begins with a vowel SOUND.
This is a sound rule, NOT a spelling rule.
an atom
an entrance
an ice cream cone
an uncle (uncle begins with a vowel sound)
an hour (the h is silent, thus a vowel sound)
A Box An Apple
a box an apple

The twentysix alphabets of English language are divided into vowels and consonants.

A,e,i,o,u are vowels. All the other alphabets are consonants.

'A' is used when a word begins with a consonant. eg a pen. The letter 'p' is a consonant .

'An' word used when a word begins with a vowel. eg an orange. The letter 'o' is a vowel.

The usage of a or an also depends on the sound of the words.
For eg an heir . Although the letter 'h' is a consonant, we use the article 'an' because theconsonant 'h' is silent.

Similarly, we also say a university. Although the letter 'u' is a vowel, we use the article 'a' because the word university begins with the consonant sound 'yu'.

Grammar

Grammar (noun): the structure and system of a language, or of languages in general, usually considered to consist of syntax and morphology.


English Parts That We Teach In School (Part)

An "abstract noun" is something that you cannot see or touch like a decision or happiness. A "countable noun" is something that you can count (for example: bottle, song, dollar). An "uncountable noun" is something that you cannot count (for example: water, music, money).


Preposition

Pronoun
