A- A A+

      The English language tem coisas curiosas e que não existem em outras languages. Uma delas são as Phonetic rules.

      Phonetic rules são aquelas based no sound, e não na grafia. Elas servem para tornar a fala more comfortable.

      Say ‘A artist‘. Viu como dá aquela trancadinha na garganta? Agora say ‘AN artist’. Sentiu como fica mas macio to speak?

      Portanto não adianta ver se a first letter da palavra em questão é vowel or consonant: it’s necessary avaliar the sound da first letter, e sentir se ela tranca na garganta.

Do you really understand? So… Let’s do a quiz!

      1. I work at   university.

      2. I would like to buy  umbrella.

      3. This is not a house. This is  hospital.

      4. They will arrive in  hour.

      5. Let’s take  x-ray.

      6. She’s  European poet.

(Answers: 1. a / 2. an / 3. a / 4. an / 5. an / 6. a)
