There are several exceptions, or more complicated situations than the char below covers. Below we have laid out some of the general and specific rules about using A, AN, and THE.
Remember, in order to use A, AN, and THE properly, you must know whether or not a noun is a Count or Non-Count Noun. (A count noun is the name of something that can be counted: one book, two books, three books. A non-count noun is the name of something that cannot be counted: milk, flour, freedom, justice).
<trvalign="top"> General Rules Use "a" or "an" with a singular count noun when you mean "one of many," "any," "in general."
Use "the" with any noun when the meaning is specific; for example, when the noun names the only one (or one) of a kind.
Don't Use "a," "an," or "the" with a non-count noun when you mean "any," "in general."
