I'm not sure if I should use an article when describing a particular place with an adjective, like:

a tram at the modern "qwerty" tram stop

doesn't sound natural. I could say just

a tram at the "qwerty" tram stop

but I'd like to describe that tram stop as "modern" in the same sentence. Should I use "the" in this case?

  • I see nothing at all unnatural about using an article before an adjective. He ate the strangely shaped prickly pear. She ate at the fancy Greek restaurant, not at the casual Italian restaurant. – Jason Bassford Jan 10 at 18:57
