How come in English, we have this structure that omits "the".
The school is in need of funding.
He is in search of adventure.
Subject + is in + X + of + Y
But then, also have "the"
We are in need of a guitarist.
They are in search of the truth.
If we need to be specific and had to use "the" only in specific cases, that would be okay. But "a guitarist" is a general term, why not "a funding", for example? Is this a special case? Are there any specific words that don't require "the"/"a"?
