To a native English speaker, what are, if any, the subtle differences that come with the variation in singular/plural of a noun as well as using a definite article or non-definitive article in an ad or marketing context?
For example, the famous Coca Cola slogan is: A. "The pause that refreshes"
What if this was changed to the following: B. "The pauses that refresh" C. "A pause that refreshes" D. "Pauses that refresh"
I'm not a native speaker, so I cannot tell what are any subtle differences in these four slogans in terms of the message or impression that they make on the reader/viewer of the ad. Can anyone help explain what are any of the subtle differences in meaning between the ad slogans A. B. C. and D.? What does each of them mean differently?
