Should I use the definite article in the following sentence:
"Slipping on ice often leads to the disruption of tendons."
would it be better to omit the article, like:
Slipping on ice often leads to disruption of tendons."
The use of articles before mass nouns or action nouns and "of" is so confusing. In one case it requires not to use "the" like:
"He took control of him."
In other cases it requires to use them like:
"The teaching of English is not an easy thing."
"The distribution of power in the country is not fair."
Could anyone help me to figure out when to use "the" and when not?
