10 sentences using article an


“Articles”, which helps us to define a noun as definite or indefinite in English, is one of the first things that people who start to learn this language should learn. It can be easily understood how simple it is if learned correctly. But even those who know advanced English can make mistakes in this grammar. Let’s start learning now.

A/An usage

“a” and “an” are known as “articles” that come before nouns and serve to indicate that these nouns are one of all other similar entities. As an example, these “articles” are used when talking about any apple you pick from your fridge by choosing just one without any discrimination.

If the names begin with a consonant letter; “a” is placed right before the noun, and if the name starts with a vowel, “an” is brought before the noun. There are two things we should pay attention to here. First, “a” and “an” can never be used alone before an adverb or adjective; must be complete. Secondly, since “a” and “an” mean “any” in the sentence, the nouns mentioned must be singular.


  • a banana
  • a cup
  • a notebook
  • a pencil
  • a lion
  • a university

We gave examples of the use of “a” above. We need to mention an exception for the “a university” example, which is in the last place among these examples. Even if the word “university” starts with a vowel, it is “a” instead of “an” because we start with a consonant when pronouncing it. The opposite of this situation can also happen. When we look at the examples given below for the use of “an”, the example of “an hour” is the opposite of the exceptional situation we just mentioned. When pronouncing the word “hour”, the letter “h” falls. Since our pronunciation begins with a vowel, it is preceded by “an”, not “a”. Here we understand that the use of “a” and “an” should be used depending on the pronunciation of the word that follows it, not the spelling.

  • an apple
  • moment officer
  • an hour
  • an actor
  • an engineer
