Los Artículos Indeterminados

Introduction

Introducción

Indefinite articles are words that are used to indicate nouns that are not particular or identifiable by the listener. In English, the words “a” and “some” are used in the singular and plural cases respectively.

Spanish uses indefinite articles in a similar way to English, but like the definite articles must match the gender of the nouns they modify.
