冠词的使用方法

冠词 可数名词 不可数名词 评论

1.在很多情况下足否加冠词及加哪个冠词,只是习惯用法的问题,常常很难解释,例如在许多类似的短语中,有的名词前加冠词,有的却不加:
at dawn (noon,night) in the morning (the day time)
in town, in the city
in front of, at the back of
to play tennis(chess),to Play the piano(the guitar)
to watch TV, to listen to the radio
to catch cold, to have a cold
as a whole, on the whole
at a distance, in the distance
at an end, in the end

2.有很多名词通常为可数名词,在一定情况下却是不可数名词,因此前面没有冠词
