I'm unclear what your question is. Most nouns can take a variety of articles, or none, depending on the meaning of the sentence. Most nouns can apply to a class of things or to a specific thing. Most nouns can be used as adjectives or form compound nouns.Q: I wonder which of the following words cannot have the same meaning, whether or not they are 'definite article the'.
bed, church, class, college, court, jail, market, prison, school, sea, ballet, circus, concert, library, opera, theater.
I wonder what words can not represent the same meaning whether the 'definite article the' is attached or not between the case of suggesting the main object and the case of pointing to the 'building itself'. I’ve seen a lot of explanations online, and I’ve wasted my time, because I’ve become more confused. For example, some argue that these represent the same meaning and some argue that they represent a different meaning.
Examples: He is in class. vs He is in the class.
The warship is now fit to go to sea. OK
The warship is now fit to go to the sea. Not idiomatic
I‘m going to go to market Not idiomatic
I‘m going to go to the market. OK
Are you saying there is no difference in meaning between these two sentences?
