The year with an extra day is called leap year.

This sentence is from an article about "Calendar".

I want to know why the article is dropped before leap year. In my opinion, the article should use as "leap year" is the name of a year "a year, which happens every four". Thanks in advance.

  • I guess it's not wrong to omit the article but i would still say that "a leap year" is correct. – SovereignSun Nov 29 '16 at 7:27

    An article is definitely required. – Mick Nov 29 '16 at 7:28
