This question may seem very elementary, but because I have very problem in using "the", I like to get an admission
I have the following sentence:
We try to simulate the way a user finds the desired data by scanning and blocking the page based on [the?] textual delimiters.
Can we use "the" before adjective noun phrases with this reason that the adjective makes the noun specific? Is it such a rule?
I mean for example "the textual delimiters" (not other type of delimiters). However, I guess it could be sated without "the" too, in that case what it means which would be different with its meaning with "the"?
