An article is a word used to modify a noun. In other words, we use articles to point out or refer to nouns in conversation and writing. If you are referring to a specific noun, use the definite article 'the'. If you are referring to a noun that could be any member of a group of nouns, use one of the indefinite articles 'a' or 'an'. To choose the appropriate indefinite article, pay attention to the sound that the noun begins with. If the noun begins with a vowel sound, use the article 'an.' If the noun begins with a consonant sound, use the article 'a.' Keep in mind that the letter and the sound don't always match up, so watch your words, and be careful to choose the appropriate article.
