Tell me please why the speaker omitted an article before the word region in the following sentence.
Just keep in mind that people use different words to mean the same thing. It depends on (the) region.
It is from this video. It is at 3 minute and 53 second.
I am confused because the word region connotes the region people live in. Or perhaps it is common to drop any article after the phrase depend on. For example, could I leave the article in the following sentence?
Generally politicians are not bad people it depends on (the) person.
