ciberido: Why is it "I gave you an apple" but not "I gave you an money"? Why is it "I gave you an apple" but "I gave you a red apple"? Why did the article for apple change from "an" to "a"? When should I use "a", when should I use "an", and when no article?

You use "an" when the next word starts with a vowel.  That one's actually pretty simple.
