Description:

Choose the create indefinite article in these sentences. We use 'a' with words that start with a consonant sound and 'an' with words that start with a vowel sound. Be careful! Some words in English start with a vowel letter (aeiou) but the sound is a consonant e.g. 'one' starts with a /w/ sound and therefore we say 'a one-hour train journey'. Similarly some words start with a consonant letter but the sound is a vowel e.g. 'honorary' starts with /ɒ/, a vowel sound so we say 'an honorary member of the board'.
