The Article “The”

We use articles a lot in sentences. Out of the three articles (“a,” “an,” and “the”), the most commonly (and incorrectly) used is the article “the.” This definitive article needs to be appropriately incorporated into sentences. Let us see a related example.

A seminar was organized at the Stanford University. (Incorrect)

A seminar was organized at Stanford University. (Correct)

Tip: Although we are talking about a specific university here, we need not include “the” before the University name primarily because the University is named after a person (in this case, Leland Stanford).
