    可數的普通名詞是多數時,泛指全體,可以不加冠詞a或the.

    名詞(單數或多數皆相同)後面有限定用的修飾語時,表示特定的對象(表示只是某一特定部分),應用定冠詞the,意思是那些或那種;單數可數而且非特定對象時,用不定冠詞a/an

    The (問1:為什麼這裡要加the) issue of whether (介系詞片語of whether...有限定功能的修飾語,前面的名詞issue需使用the)we should attempt to save (問2:為什麼這裡不用加the) endangered species (用多數代表全體,不需再加限定) from extinction or not is certainly a contentious one. Despite the(問3:為什麼這裡要加the) arguments of some people(介系詞片語of some people有限定功能,前面的名詞需定冠詞) that such (問4:為什麼這裡不用加the) animals(such有限定的功能,不必再用the) serve no useful purpose and should be allowed to die out just as many others have in the past, it is my personal belief that they should in fact be preserved. Two of the principal reasons for this are as follows.

    Firstly, it is vital that we appreciate the importance of (問5:為什麼這裡不用加the) endangered species(多數代表全體,不必限定) in maintaining the(問6:為什麼這裡要加the) balance of nature(後面有介系詞片語加以限定). (問7:為什麼這裡不用加the) Ecosystems (多數代名全體,無需再限定)are delicate arrangements where (問8:為什麼這裡不用加the)plants and (問9:為什麼這裡不用加the)animals(兩者都是多數,代表全體,無需限定) all depend on each other for survival …
