Now there's another question for the repetition of indefinite article with several adjectives, but my question here is rather about nouns.


She's a manager and a shareholder.


She's a manager and shareholder.

Do we make use of only one indefinite article or add several?

  • Or, you could say 'She's both manager and shareholder'. (Using the null article.) – Nigel J Aug 20 '19 at 11:49

For lists of two, either works. When the list gets beyond two, it's appropriate to use the latter in a comma separated list.

She's a manager, shareholder, financier, and senior adviser.
