Abstract: The objective of this study was to identify before what kinds of adjectives the indefinite article, a or an, is used, and before what kinds of adjectives the indefinite article is not used, when these adjectives are followed by the word pain, and when the pain does not refer to a specific part of the body. This study was conducted making use of a large number of examples taken from the corpus in the BNC. The results of this study show that when the adjectives are describing the pain concretely, these noun phrases tend to be used with a or an, and that when the adjectives are describing the pain abstractly, these noun phrases tend not to be used with a or an.
