A- an/ how to choose
Message from mintyue posted on 02-02-2013 at 07:26:06 (D | E | F)
Why is it "a" uniform not "an" uniform?
I am taught at school that it should be "an" in front of a word beginning with a vowell such as "a\e\i\o\u".
Thanks a lot!

That is because the combining of words here is guided by the consonant sound ("yu" sound) that begins the word and not by the spelling.
