Il n'est pas toujours évident de savoir à quel moment mettre un déterminant en anglais et à quel moment il n'y en a pas besoin. Et quand il faut mettre un déterminant, lequel choisir ?

Après un petit rappel de la leçon, vous trouverez des exercices et leur correction pour bien assimiler la notion.

Rappel de la leçon sur les déterminants

Comment progresser en cours d'anglais ? Il est possible de ne plus faire d'erreur en anglais avec les déterminants.

Il existe quatre possibilités en anglais : a, an, the ou Ø (pas d'article) :

  • A/an correspond à l'article indéfini un/une en français. Devant une consonne, on utilisera a, devant une voyelle, ce sera an. Exception : le u est considéré comme une consonne, il faudra donc mettre a devant un nom commençant par u et pas an. Il est aussi placé devant un métier, après une préposition, dans une exclamation et dans les expressions de temps. A university / he is an engineer / she is dressed as a ballerina / what a surprise ! / twice a year,
  • The correspond à l'article défini le/la/les en français. Il renvoie à quelque chose d'identifié, de déjà vu, dont on a déjà parlé. Il est aussi utilisé pour désigner quelque chose d'unique au monde, devant les superlatifs, les décennies, les groupes de personnes, les noms d'instrument et les noms propres. The dog over there / the sun is yellow / the biggest man in the room / the eighties / the rich / the violin / the Jones,
  • Ø (article zéro) est le pluriel de a/an mais il est aussi utilisé pour désigner les noms abstraits, certains noms d'aliments, les saisons, les maladies, les noms suivis d'un chiffre, certains noms de lieu et la télévision. Tulips are my favourite flowers / happiness is a life goal / I love coffee / it is winter / I got flu / chapter 6 / I hate school / he is watching television.
