Hi,

Can you check if the articles underlined are correct? Let's say I am talking about what has happened in my dream or a hypothetical situation where I am writing a part of scenario. Can you include the reasons for your choice. Thank you.

"I am going to have a boxing match today. I know that when I enter the ring, I will be shaking and the audience will be looking very closely at me. The door of my locker room will open slowly and I will be out there at the stadium, walking toward the ring. The trainer will try to have me do my best. The assistant helper will also be standing by the trainer's side to render any help. Exciting day, it will be."

Hi,

Can you tell me why they are correct? Is that because the artlcles "thes" are need to be there because of the "apparent" context involved? Just like the sentence, "I fell into the water." <<< Not a great example, because you can't say 'a water'.

The situation makes it clear? Yes, that's a reasonable way to think of it. When you specify 'a boxing match', we understand you are specifying that there is one particular ring, one particular referee, two particular fighters, etc.

eg I bought a car. The seats are leather. The engine has four cylinders.

Best wishes, Clive
