Word of the day, "context". Understand it.

Know when to use "a" and "the" and you will be that much more proficient in English.

Rice and Cotton grow in the Ukraine - correct

The rice and cotton grow in the Ukraine - once again, correct.

The rice and the cotton grow in the Ukaine - hey, what do you know...also correct.

Lomonosov, a great Russian scientist.......correct.

Lomonosov, the great Russian scientist.......again, correct.

"a great Russian scientist" conveys that there are many great Russian scientists.

"the great Russian scientist" signifies that he is one of a few or if not the only great Russian scientist.

If you can understand me, then I welcome your argument.

Sorry, Patrick, "the Ukraine" is not correct anymore. It was correct after the year 1991. Wnen Ukraine became an independent state, its linguists and diplomats applied to some bodies in charge of English grammar rules with a request to drop "the" in front of "Ukraine". And they managed to get this change adopted. I do not remember wnen exactly this happened. Approximately this was between the beginning of 1991 and the end of 1993. Many people still say and write "the Ukraine" out of habit, but many also dropped "the" and say/write 'He lives in Ukraine", "News from Ukraine", etc. Though, of course, "the Ukrainian government", "the Ukrainian language" are still correct.

Lomonosov is one of the few greatest scientists. For this reason, Russians insist on writing "the Russian scientist", though, I believe, "a Russian scientist" is also possible, like in this quotation from the Wikipedia: "Mikhail (Mikhaylo) Vasilyevich Lomonosov (Russian: Михаи́л Васи́льевич Ломоно́сов; November 19 [O.S. November 8] 1711 – April 15 [O.S. April 4] 1765) was a Russian polymath, scientist and writer, who made important contributions to literature, education, and science. "

Cotton does not grow in Ukraine - too cold. I am not sure about rice.

I live in Ukraine, I know. :)
A question to you: Which is correct: "I've read this on Wikipedia" or "I've read this on the Wikipedia"? I really do not know, I woud use "the", but I've noticed that people use it without "the"
Patrick Russ

Understood. I wasn't disputing the Ukraine comment. (correct context of "the"). It was merely attempt to clarify the acceptable usages of "a" and "the" when referring to a person such as Lomonosov. The phrase "The great Russian scientist" places direct importance on him signaling his greatness. However, one can write "a great Russian scientist" to show commonality- to show that there are many more in Russia or Ukraine. It is important to understand this, I believe.

Additionally, this author of this topic had a list of sentences in which he needed articles placed before each specific word. A lot of these sentences are misleading and can be consider incorrect - some words contain no articles preceeding them (such as Ukraine). This leads to my curiosity of the correctness of the English books that students use. Furthermore, the fact that rice or cotton does not grow in Ukraine is irrelevent for this discussion. It was given as a sentence in the original post and I attempted to answer it.

Either or is fine. "The Wikipedia" sounds funny but you still can say it. I would say "I've read this on Wikipedia".

I appreciate your insight. Thanks.

Not long ago we were disputing these sentences and didn't come to consent-I mean the sentences about Lomonosov and Gogol, and what should students choose when their teachers wait for one answer but not the variants? By the way the grammar book by Kaushanskaya that is used by our English studying students gives the only variant "the".
What would you say, please respond
Patrick Russ
If Lomonosov was my favorite Russian scientist I would say "Lomonosov, the great Russian scientist......" If he was a one of many Russian scientist that I respected, then I would say " Lomonosov, a great Russian scientist....."

Subsequently, both are grammatically correct. It is important to understand this. Every word does not have an absolute article that precedes it. Almost every noun can be interchanged with "a" "an" or "the" depending on the sentence, noun, and context. Additionally, every noun may not require an article. It all depends on the sentence and what you're trying to say......

Such as "Rice" and "Cotton".

Example: How does the rice taste? The rice tastes great.

Example: How does the cotton feel? The cotton feels nice.

Example: The rice tastes great and the cotton feels nice.

Example: Where is the rice and the cotton grown? The rice and the cotton are grown in Vietnam (I don't know where they grow that shit - don't care)

In the last sentence, you are talking about a specific rice and a specific cotton.

If the person or the work of art is not widely known we use I think,,a'' ,but if the noun denotes a well -known person or work of art,we should use,,the'': lomonosov,the great Russian scientist... (compare:,,pericles'',a comedy by Shakespeare,is... ) .But at the same time if we mean ,,one of'' then we should use,,a''. 1.a,a,the,the 4.I think no article is necessary before ,,rice'' and cotton''.

Верунь,а по твоему Ломоносов НЕ ШИРОКО ИЗВЕСТЕН?

Почему один и тот же артикль ставится перед три(дерево)?

There was a discotheque at the club last Saturday but he didn't go.
Почему перед Клабом ставится определенный артикль,а не неопределенный?

This is a very difficult question. I don't know the answer to it.
