Use of articles


why Grammarly suggested a mistake in the use of articles in this the phrase "in addition:"

It does not sound right for me to write ; In an addition or in the addition

See example: In addition:

You're using 'in addition' the same way you would use 'also' or 'too', but Grammarly is seeing 'addition' as a noun (an addition to a house, for example) and wants an article to go along with it. Ignore the correction or change it to 'also' or 'too'.
