Nouns without articles


Un sustantivo (noun) es todo aquello a lo que podemos agregar una descripci贸n.
Consideramos contable a lo que S脥 podemos contar con los n煤meros. Por ejemplo:


Consideramos incontable a aquello que NO podemos contar con n煤meros. Por ejemplo:


Los uncountable nouns no llevan art铆culo

En el ingl茅s, hay veces en las que no necesitamos usar art铆culos (the, a, an) para acompa帽ar a los sustantivos. Especialmente, cuando los sustantivos son incontables. No decimos I need a love, sino I need love, ya que el amor no se puede medir en cantidad.

Ejemplos de oraciones con uncountable nouns

F铆jate en la ausencia del art铆culo.

  • I鈥檇 like to drink iced tea. / Me gustar铆a beber t茅 helado.
  • The girl likes to eat ice cream. / A la chica le gusta comer helado.

Repaso: Crea tus propias oraciones con tea e ice cream, sin utilizar art铆culos.

Las generalizaciones no llevan art铆culo

Cuando hablamos de personas, cosas o situaciones de manera general, es decir, sin referirnos a algo en espec铆fico, tampoco empleamos art铆culos.

Ejemplos de generalizaciones

Mira que en ninguna de estas oraciones se emplea the, a o an; es decir, no llevan art铆culo.

  • Life is beautiful. / La vida es hermosa.
  • I don鈥檛 like homework. / No me gustan las tareas.
  • People are kind. / La gente es amable.
  • Sunny likes apples, but not oranges. / A Sunny le gustan las manzanas, pero no las naranjas.
  • She likes dogs. / A ella le gustan los perros.
  • Water is good for your health. / El agua es buena para tu salud.

OJO: como podemos observar, en el espa帽ol, las oraciones s铆 llevan art铆culo. Sin embargo, en el ingl茅s no se deben usar, ya que se est谩 generalizando. En el primer ejemplo, la vida es hermosa, nos referimos a la vida en general, no a la vida de alguien en espec铆fico.

Ejercicio de oraciones sin art铆culos

Crea 5 ejemplos de oraciones con sustantivos que no requieran utilizar art铆culos. Te dejo mis 5 ejemplos si te pueden servir de alguna gu铆a.

  • Some apples are green.
  • He needs to drink water.
  • Andrea eats eggs for breakfast.
  • I love pizza.
  • Life is strange.
