Prinsip umum dalam bahasa Inggris adalah setiap kata benda harus diikuti dengan artikel, baik artikel definit seperti the dan artikel tak definit seperti a dan an. Sebagai contoh sebagai berikut:

  1. I have a car bukan I have car.

  2. The book is mine bukan book is mine.

Akan tetapi, ada beberapa kata benda dalam bahasa Inggris yang justru tidak boleh menggunakan baik artikel definit maupun artikel tak definit. Berikut contoh kata-kata tersebut yang saya ambil dari kamus Macmillan Dictionary:

SALAH

1. People who have spent a few years in prison also need a rehabilitation.

2. Surely, this new conception of Europe will bring an enormous progress in many fields.

3. It is a debatable point whether an imprisonment is the most effective method of punishment.

4. Everybody knows that for a victim of a sexual abuse the suffering is physical but also mental.

BENAR

  1. People who have spent a few years in prison also need rehabilitation .

  2. Surely, this new conception of Europe will bring enormous progress in many fields.

  3. It is a debatable point whether imprisonment is the most effective method of punishment.

  4. Everybody knows that for a victim of sexual abuse the suffering is physical but also mental.

Contoh penggunaan di atas adalah kata benda yang seharusnya menggunakan artikel a/an (artikel tak definit). Di bawah ini adalah contoh lain yang seharusnya menggunakan artikel definit, tetapi malah harus menggunakan zero article (tak berartikel):

SALAH

  1. The true happiness does not lie in wealth.

2. Although the slavery was abolished in the 19th century, black people still face racism in all parts of the world.

3. Should the euthanasia be legalised?

4. There is no doubt that the money can help us deal with many difficult situations.
