A versus An - Old Anon

Posted: Oct 8th, 2019 - 2:01 pm In Reply to: A Versus - An

The word 'an' is used when the word that follows it presents with a vowel sound. The letter R is pronounced ar, so 'an' is used. Example, an RHIT. The word 'a' is used when the word following it presents with a consonant sound such as in 'a' boy ran out his house. The 'b' in boy sounds like 'buh.' Whether to use an 'a' or 'an' depends on the sound created by the vowel or consonant, not so much the fact that it IS a vowel or consonant. It's the sound of it that counts.
