Q: It's a little of a linguitic question.It's about the articles. We know that we need to consider about articles when speaking English ,which doesn't happen when speaking Japanese. Some told that it's because it's important for native speakers how many something is.But why is it so important? What's a reason for them to think it important? lt might be because how they see things or think of things are diffrent from those here.It might be because of another thing. I'd like to dig into answers.
A: articles are important in English. yes, it can tell how many. if you use a or an, that may mean the noun is only one.

Also, articles can be used to mean you are talking about something specific or not.
example, if u say 'the beautiful hospital', you refer to a certain hospital. but if you say a beautiful hospital, it could be any hospital that is beautiful.
