I'm reading English Grammar in Use and I came up with some silly questions.
Why do English people use "a" or "an" in the first place? This is odd because we, in our language, don't have the same thing. for example: in our language, if a child wants an apple, he would say: "I want apple". Nobody asks whether he wants one ("an") or more than one. Daddy goes and buys half a kilogram of apples and gets back.
OR "She never wears a hat". When you hear this sentence, Do you think of She never wears "one" hat?
What is the problem with: She never wears hat? What makes use "a hat"?
OR Someone unaware once said: "Tom's father is a docter. Oh, A docter? if they didn't mention, I would have thought Tom's father is three docters!
Last question. In the book I'm reading, there is sentence like this, what is its problem?
Those are nice chairs.(not some nice chairs)-----why?
