  • Hello. Grammar question:

    Do u say a hallucination or an hallucination? Cuz I'm a wee bit confused after reading Fear Street: Don't Stay up Late, where it is referred to as both a hallucination and an hallucination. So, can both articles be used? Thx:)

    • So the misconception is that "a" goes before words that begin with a consonant letter and "an" goes before words that begin with a vowel. The reality is "a" goes before words that begin with a consonant *sound* and "an" goes before words with a vowel sound.

      The word hallucination is pronounced in some dialects with a silent H, so it can be said with a consonant or vowel beginning sound. So, to confuse you more, the answer is it depends on who you ask? lol

      Secondly, I figured it out.

      Finally, thank you.

    • I didn't know it was deleted? lol I saw it in my notifications and just replied.

      Feel free to ask me grammar questions anytime. I'm a grammar fanatic, and I teach middle school, so I like talking about this stuff.

    • > Thanks

      So, are we gonna go through this endless cycle of mutual support where we both go back and forth saying "Thank you"?

      > Thank you

      No problem
