What about a and an?
Hey, I was talking with one of my friends who speaks Spanish and is learning English. She was telling me that in Spanish they have feminine and masculine nouns. I don’t remember which ones she said, so sorry if these are backwards but lets say for example that a book is masculine and a pencil is feminine. So they put un for the masculine and unA for the feminine. And I was like, we don’t have that in English. But later, I was thinking about A versus AN like a book. ... Sorry, I can’t think of another example for an right now, but sometimes we use that. I KNOW it is not masculine or feminine, but why do we change them? When should we use an?
