The main purpose of this topic is to conduct all discussion in English language (only exception is the translation of this opening post, in order for everyone to understand the rules and limitations of this topic). It is envisaged to provide practice, vocabulary expending, and increasement of proficiency in overall English language usage. Everyone is welcome to ask questions, and/or seek assistance in understanding some subject, and/or solving some quandary, as long as it is asked in English; therefore it is only natural that anyone providing the answer shall be obliged to do so in English. Daily chit-chat is allowed, for as long as it does not turn into spamming and/or trolling.

Rules that that will be exerted:
- Only English language posts allowed,
- Every non English post will be deleted,
- No profanities,
- No spamming and/or trolling.


Citat:Glavni cilj ove teme je da se sve debate vrše korišćenjem engleskog jezika (jedini izuzetak je prevod ovog uvodnog posta kako bi svi bili upoznati sa pravilima i ograničenjima ove teme). Predviđena je da se koristi za vežbanje, obogaćivanje rečnika, i povećanje sposobnosti sveobuhvatne upotrebe engleskog jezika. Svi su dobrodošli da postavljaju pitanja, i/ili traže pomoć pri razumevanju određenih oblasti i/ili rešavanju nedoumica, dok god pitaju na engleskom; samim tim svi oni koji budu pružali odgovore, biće u obavezi da to rade na engleskom. Četovanje je dozvoljeno, dok god ne prerasta u spamovanje i/ili trolovanje.

Pravila koja će se poštovati:
- Dozvoljeni su samo postovi na engleskom jeziku,
- Svi postovi koji nisu na englekom će biti brisani,
- Psovke nisu dozvoljene,
- Spamovanje i/ili trolovanje nije dozvoljeno.

What a great idea, blue! I'm so happy about it. smešak I will surely participate here.
And, just to remind you all - this is written English, so we should not use abbreviations. smešak
And, just something that drew my attention - when we say English, of course there is no any article, but if we say English language, we should put an article - the English language.

That is it, for the beginning. Mr. Green

We can use abbreviations as well, it's just a matter of preference.

Pay attention to title of this topic:

Oxford English Academy Forum didn't use the definite article smešak

Citat:(And, hey - correct me, please, every time you notice some mistake of mine smešak)

Hm... Confused In our grammar it is said that 'language' is always followed by 'the' in front of the mentioned language.

So, let's start with questions. Mr. Green
When goes 'the' and when it is omitted?

I would say that "the" is used when we want to emphasize on the language at hand.
