I can't decide...
A ubiquitous xxx - the rule is that it follows the phonic sound of the first syllable in the following word, in this case "yew".
This is the same rule that gives us "a university".
It wouldn't be correct to use 'the' in the context - unfortunately, as that would solve my dilemma!
stick an extra adjective in
a completely ubiquitous . . .
an utterly ubiquitous . . .
an undeniably uniquitous . . .
There is no problem so intractable that throwing extra words at it cannot solve it
Pixel is, like, so right
Yuk, sorry packer but this is a scientific report, not flowery prose! No chance I can get away with that...
I appreciate the help though
Use 'A' before 'u' and 'eu' when they sound like 'you': e.g., a european, a university, a unit.
I think the a's have it!
Ta all - 'tis my misfortune to have fallen into the generation that weren't taught grammar explicitly.
My vote's with 'A' too...
*wonders if enigmatic would mind if KJB diverts thread momentarily to say I am STILL trying to find that beautiful hair 'item' you were wearing the other week... Did you say TopShop?
Yes it was TopShop, in the sale rack of the accessories bit...
I have more new exciting hair things now - birthday presents - I am adorned!
Done every Top Shop for miles and I can't find one anywhere...
Oh well, I'll keep looking - I wondered if I'd mistaken the shop.
Aw no well Miss Selfridge have some lovely hair things at the moment - sort of bohemian chic, if that appeals?
