Notes

In deliberately archaising speech, et, en, es, em, e are pronounced /ɛt, ɛn, ɛm, ɛ/, however in ordinary speech these have all fallen together as /ə/ (/ən/ before a vowel). Use of the indefinite article is also optional if an adjective appears before the noun, and the decision to use it or not usually depends on euphonic considerations (e.g. it is rare to use the article if the previous word in the utterance ends in a vowel).
