Summary of the uses of Articles, Determiners, and Quantifiers

and application

 

A

AN

THE

ZERO ARTICLE

THIS/THAT

THESE/THOSE

EACH/EVERY

EITHER/NEITHER

MUCH

ENOUGH

WHICH/WHAT

POSSESSIVES

ANY/SOME
(stressed)

ANY/SOME
(unstressed)

Notice that there is a difference between a "stressed" some or any and an "unstressed" some or any. Consider the words in ALL CAPS as shouted words and you will hear the difference between these two:

·         That is SOME car you've got there!

·         I don't want to hear ANY excuse!

As opposed to. . .

·         We have some cars left in the lot.

·         Isn't there any furniture in the living room?

In terms of the words they usually modify, the unstressed some and any do not modify singular count nouns.
