Function of Articles

The following are the articles used in standard English: A, An, and The. ‘A’ and ‘An’ are considered indefinite articles. These are to be used only with singular count nouns as well as to talk about something that falls into a broader category. Some examples would be: a dog, an emu, a fruit. ‘The’ is to be used before both count nouns and non-count nouns. Some examples would be: the store, the pier, and the sand.
