comment Use of article with “heavy traffic” vs. “a traffic jam”
Ronald, milk is uncountable (as liquid), but if it means as packaged milk, then it cam be counted. May i refer this Link . I presume traffic can be viewed as a unique system in a particular area.

comment Use of article with “heavy traffic” vs. “a traffic jam”
Regards Ronald, and thanks. If traffic is a system of moving vehicles, then i could say : 'I was delayed by a traffic (in town A)'. The traffic can be different for each region. If this is not the case, then i presume that 'traffic' is as similar as 'mathematics' in 'His graduation was delayed by difficult mathematics.'

comment Is it possible to switch the word 'there' with object of preposition?
Hi Bill. Regards, thanks for your answer. The object of preposition 'On the bottom of the MetroCard' acts as an object in the original sentence, but i did not know this before, and now i know that a clause can be in V + S order. If i add 'there', which will be the subject, the object of preposition would act as an adjective of the object 'three arrows .... '. What does NP and PP stand for in your answer..? Thanks.

comment Is it possible to switch the word 'there' with object of preposition?
Hi Alex. Regards, thanks for your answer and especially the reference. From your post I presume that 'On the bottom of the MetroCard looks neat' would be an incorrect sentence, because 'neat' is an adjective, it is not a subject. So even if the structure is Verb + Subject, in that order, it is a clause. Thanks.
