acclaimed him emperor?

yahoo字典裡acclaim的例句:

(以歡呼聲)宣佈; 擁立[O9]The mob acclaimed him emperor.亂民擁立他為皇帝。

請問為何emperor前後不用加the 或a呢?

請各位幫我解釋一下,感謝!

    The mob acclaimed him emperor.亂民擁立他為皇帝。

    請問為何emperor前後不用加the 或a呢?

    皇帝為一個國家唯一不二的人, 所以不可加不定冠詞a(某一個).

    擁立為皇帝, 這說明了這群亂民所建的國家原來沒有皇帝, 至少皇帝原來不是him, 首次出現的稱號不可加定冠詞the, 再度提到方可加the. 所以, 本句的emperor當然就不加

    the了.

    另例:

    They elected him president.

    他們選舉他為總統.
