An apple and not a apple?
You use an when the next word begins with a vowel or a vowel sound. An apple because a is a vowel. It's also an honest person because the h is silent and you make the sound of the o.
if the word behind the "a" or "an" begins with a vowel then you use "an", if it does not begin with a vowel you use "a"
"an" is used if the next word begins with a vowel, "a" is used when the following word begins with a consonant.
AN comes before a word beginning with a vowel and A comes before a word beginning with a consonant.
(An) is used before any words beginning with the vowels A,E,I,O,U while (a) is used before the remaining letters of the alphabet (consonants)
Hope this helped!
An apple because it starts with a vowel.
A bird because it starts with a consenant.
An is used before a word behinning with a vowel, and A is used before a word that starts with a consonant.
"A" and "an" are articles that come before nouns. If the noun begins with a vowel then "an" will come before it. If the noun begins with any consonant, then "a" will come before that.
This makes the words flow more easily. Try saying "a apple" or "an television" and see what happens.
Try saying "A apple". You will find you have to take a break in between the new word. Now try saying "An apple". Notice a difference? "A" is said before a word starting with a consonant. "An" is used before a word starting with a vowel. BUTTTT. You would say "An H" and "A U". This is because these sound "Aych" and "Yu". It's all very confusing isn't it?
when the word after "a" or "an" begins with a vowel, use "an", otherwise , use "a"
