General Rules 
 
There are two articles in the English language – the  Indefinite Article and 
the Definite Article.  
 
The Indefinite Article has two forms – a and an (a precedes words  
beginning with a consonant sound and an precedes words beginning with a 
vowel sound). It comes from the Old English word ãn, which meant one
 
The Definite Article is the. It comes from the Old English word ţis, which 
meant this.  
Thus, in most general terms, a and an  cannot be used with countable nouns 
in the plural and with uncountable nouns. Countable nouns are names of 
the things you can count (one elephant , two elephants, three elephants, etc). 
Uncountable nouns are names of the things you cannot normally count  
(love, air, philosophy , etc).  The can usually be used when we mean  this. 
 
The Indefinite Article  a/an (= one!) can only be used with  singular  
countable nouns. 
child , a book, an elephant, an apple 
On the other hand , singular countable nouns cannot be used without any 
determiner. Determiners are both articles (a/an and the) and different  
pronouns (e.g., one, another , each, every, this, that; personal pronouns: my, 
your, his, her, its, our, their). Only one determiner can be used at a time:     
           
My house was deserted.  Or: The house was deserted.  
Another problem is the pollution that the  factory   causes  to the  
environment. Or: One other problem is the pollution the factory 
causes to the environment.

The Definite Article – the, can be used with both singular and plural 
countable and uncountable nouns. 
By the time we got to the bus stop, the bus had already left
The  children I saw in the playground were my  brother 's friends. 
The  weather  is awful today
  
Another general rule about the use of the Indefinite and Definite Article is 
that the Indefinite Article is used when mentioning someone or something  
for the first time and the Definite Article is used when referring to 
someone/something that has been mentioned before
We passed  a beautiful house on our way to Birmingham. – Was 
the house for sale ?  
I saw a man standing near  the house. The man was well-dressed 
and looked like a businessman. 
  
In case of plural countable nouns and uncountable nouns, in ordinary 
situations, when something is mentioned for the first time, some is used. 
We passed some beautiful houses  on our way to the  beach .  
There were some people at the  station . There was some  sand  on 
the  building site. 
In extraordinary situations or when we want to emphasize something no 
article is used. 
 
 
Poor people cannot afford to  live in beautiful houses
