I've recently noticed that in some cases, the definite article before a noun is dropped. I assume this is only characteristic of spoken interaction. The first time I noticed this was while watching a gameplay on Youtube. This is the sentence that caught my attention:
Family pic used to hang here. I can't actually remember which one.
As far as I'm considered, it there should be an article before picture, either "a" or "the".
Here's another case which I noticed today while watching Mr. Robot on Prime Videos (Amazon):
He definitely got it from radiation at the company he worked at, though I couldn't prove it.
Now he's dead.
Company's fine, though.
Since "company" is known from previous context and is mentioned again, I would expect to see:
The company's fine, though.
Initially I thought that the article is pronounced carelessly so as not to be audible but now I actually think it's just ommitted. Am I correct?
Sorry if this is a duplicate.
