Today in the thread of " Jeans and T- shirt", Mr. Micawber used a word ensemble , and suddenly the epiphany came to me.
I hope I am correct about the following “ensembles” too.
1- Knife and fork
2- Inch by inch
3- Husband and wife. etc
Could you please tell me if all the sentences in each set are correct?
1- He cannot handle knife and fork.
2- He cannot handle a knife and fork.
3- He cannot handle a knife and a fork.
1- He died an inch by inch.
2- He died inch by inch.
1- Nothing should be hidden between husband and wife.
2- Nothing should be hidden between a husband and a wife.
3 Nothing should be hidden between a husband and wife.
Looking forward to an interesting discussion.
