This sounds ok. It is so well-known that the fits perfectly.Is it possible to use it the "the" article at all?
There are more people in Japan who have won the Nobel Prize than in any other Asian country.
Won't it be just a generalization of all the prizes won?
I thought that The Noble Prize has a collective meaning which implies all the Noble Prizes.I don't think "the Nobel Prize" fits at all well. There are some Nobel Prizes awarded each year, each in a different field of endeavour, so what could the Nobel Prize be referring to? (I thought to all of the ones awared). My preference is for "a Nobel Prize" (ie one of the prizes available at the time it was won), but "Nobel Prizes" seems a perfectly reasonable alternative.
Yes, but that does not provide the context in which the words are used, and the ngram for British English is very different from the ngrams for English and for American English.You might like to look at Google ngram.
It does, radically:The ngram does not differ for British or American English.
The following quotations are examples of the Nobel Prize used as a collective term.I thought that The Noble Prize has a collective meaning which implies all the Noble Prizes.
Something like "the rose" generalizes all the roses in the world.
This is a correct sentence. It could mean that the person in question won a Nobel Prize in literature in any year in the past (not specified).She won a Nobel Prize in Literature.
Is this sentence correct?
Can't I say the Nobel Prize, because Nobel is a person's name?
When do you put a, the, or no article before Nobel Prize?
Thank you for your clarification.This is a correct sentence. It could mean that the person in question won a Nobel Prize in literature in any year in the past (not specified).
However, 'the' works in the following sentence thus:
'She won the 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature'.
If the year isn't mentioned, we shouldn't use 'the', since there's not just one unique Nobel Prize; it is awarded every year in different subjects.
Also, using no article isn't grammatically correct.
