2 Adjective and Articles The words a, an, and the are special adjectives called articles. -Use a and an before singular nouns. Use a before words that begin with a consonant. Use an before words that begin with a vowel. -Use the for both singual and plural nouns. ex. College students dug along (the, an) bank of a river. They were trying to find (a, an) old village. Long ago, Native Americans built (a, an) town there. Some adjectives are formed from proper nouns. -Adjectives that are formed from proper nouns always begin with a capital letter. ex.
