I work as a tutor for an online English school and one student asked me this:
"In this sentence: I have the hiccups
Could it be: I Have hiccups?"
I have done a lot of research on advanced article usage but I haven't found anything even close to that. I have no idea what to say.
Any help will be appreciated. Especially if you can suggest articles about this subject.
Thanks in advance.
It is not a duplicate to a cold vs flu / the flu discussion because talking about having "hiccups" is not the same as talking about having "flu".
