I'm in love with the difinite article.

Seriously, you can have your indefinite article all you want. Its too damn wishy-washy. What about partitive articles you ask? I'm not even sure they exist. They are a lot like a gymnast that's into me. Great in theory, but I've never seen one. Zero articles? Hell no. I believe in monogamy.

The definite article though. It makes everything better - even terrible things. Consider: if you say "HIV" the person you are speaking to will more than likely feel sadness or fear. But, if you throw the definite article in there (the HIV) and sadness and fear is replaced by a soft chuckle.

"Mr. Jones, you've got cancer." (oh no, I'm going to die)
"Mr. Jones, you've got the cancer." (ha ha this damn doctor is old school.)

So, please folks try to use the definite article more often.

If you have any questions GFY.

It'd be nice if the subject line would be spelled correctly.

But for that you'd need the grammar.

This thread is the lame.

Did that make you feel better? Did that soften the blow?

articles are nice. they're not as easy to teach as you'd think though... surprisingly.

I prefer my definite article mispelled, and perhaps with a touch of numericness thrown in for good measure.

From an etymological standpoint:

the = old English
teh = middle English
t3h = awesome (Beaverian) English

ETA - is that your kid playing with the toilet bowl?
