"a vs. an"

A lot of people learn to put a before words that star with consonants and an before words that start with vowels, but it’s actually more complicated than that. The actual rule is that you use before words that start with a consonant sound and an before words that start with a vowel sound.

  • Tom waited for an hour.
  • Monica was on a historic expedition. 

An hour is correct because hour starts with a vowel sound. People seem to most commonly get tripped up by words that start with the letter h and u because sometimes these words start with vowel sounds and sometimes they start with consonant sounds. For example, it is a historic expedition because history starts with an h sound, but it is an honorable fellow because honorable starts with an o sound. 

  • Tom had a Utopian idea,
  • Monica reminded him it’s an unfair world.

The letters o and m can be tricky too. Usually you put an before words that with o, but sometimes you use a. For example, you would use if you were to say, “She has a one-track mind,” because one-track starts with a w sound.

  • Tom wants to work as a missionary.
  • Monica wants to get an MBA. 

REMINDER: The sound governs whether you use or annot the first letter of the word. (Fogarty 6).

But instead of Marvel heroes joining forces

It was Disney Princesses
