Use of article "the"
I would like to know your opinions regarding the use of an article in the following sencence:
- On a monthly basis, Mrs. Smith sends a wire transfer from THE account 01234 at Arlington Bank to THE account 56789 at Newport Securities.
I personally prefer not to use "the" because I feel it is unnecessary to use it in this sentence. Suggestions or comments are welcome.
In your example, "the" is used as a definite article that signifies specific accounts at Arlington Bank and Newport Securities. The noun is a definite count noun and, in my opinion, requires the article. If it were a noncount noun, the article can be used or omitted.
