In grammar the adjective 'the' is called the definite article. It points out a particular noun or
pronoun (An and A are indefinite articles. They point to no specific or particular noun or
pronoun.) Native English speakers use adjectives to modify their nouns and pronouns. Using
articles is sometimes a stumbling block for many people who use English as a second language.
Articles make sentences interesting, clearer, and more exact.
