Different Aspects of Articles in Spanish
Articles are of different types and are usually classified according to the style in which they express the idea. An article is any piece of writing of a group of pronouns used together with nouns to indicate the identity of the true referents of these pronouns. The category of articles comprises a major part of language. In the English language the articles may be divided in three categories, which are the pronouns, nouns and articles. The articles are classified as passive, active and independent.
A passive article refers to a thing that is not acted upon or possesses an existence without an action. These articles are of two types, the first type being indefinite and the second, definite. An indefinite article may indicate an indefinite subject while a definite article indicates either an indefinite or definite verb. indefinite articles do not require a determiner and are usually used to indicate an object rather than a subject.
English has various formal and casual styles of using articles and in English grammar the use of articles depends on the type of usage and the nature of language. English nouns and pronouns are classified according to gender and number, while articles for objects are classified according to whether they are countable or uncountable. Countable articles are those that have a definite number while uncountable articles are those that have no definite number and can denote either zero, one or many. The articles for objects are further classified in similar way as the articles for definite and indefinite nouns.
English nouns are classified according to their nature. Some nouns are simple and generic while others are complex and specific. In the first sentence of the second sentence, the indefinite article can refer to anything and in the second sentence it can refer to something that cannot be definite or indefinite. It can also refer to something that does not exist. There are many examples of these articles that we often use.
Tener is a type of indefinite article that has to do with fire. Tener is a type of fire and a kettle is a kettle (a unit of measurement) that can be used to measure heat. Tener is used to indicate fire in the context of cooking matters and it has to do with tererine which is a red form of sugar obtained from sugar cane.
Other articles include demonstrative, absolute, comparative, superlative, object, auxiliary, adverbs and pronouns. Each of these articles has its own peculiarities and they sound like different words in addition to being spelled the same way in Spanish. They also have different genders and possessive markers. Although all articles have a generic sound when they are used in simple sentences, when they are used in complex sentences they lose their generic sound like different words.
