We are having a discussion of the use of "a" vs "an". We realize that in sentence we should use an (alpha numerical display and not as written a alpha numerical display). However, should the 'a/an' not refer back to the noun 'display'?
In this standard supply is a alpha numerical display for calibration
It is determined by the beginning sound of the word that immediately follows. It does not matter what kind of word it is. A vowel sound uses "an". An alpha-numerical display, an incredibly strange image, an elephant in the room, an hour ago.
