Indefinite and Definite Articles
There is no need to worry about whether a noun is masculine, feminine, or neuter in English. Normally, a noun is preceded by a definite article (THE) or an indefinite article (A, AN) as follows: DEFINITE ARTICLE the tourist
the signs INDEFINITE ARTICLE a tourist
Note that definite articles refer to something specific, while indefinite articles refer to something non-specific. Use an in front of words beginning with vowels and some with plural nouns.
