A is used before a consonant, an before a vowel. Thus we say an Emperor, a King. Sometimes a virtual consonant exists at the beginning of a word without being written, as in union and once, which are pronounced with the initial sounds of y and w, younion and wunce. Before such words it is customary to drop the final letter of the article, at least in pronunciation, and there can be no good reason for not writing a union, a once beloved monarch. On the other hand, whenever h is mute, we should retain the n both in writing and speaking; thus, a history, but an historical work. That an and not a is the primitive form of the article, is proved by the Anglo-Saxon an and the German ein; indeed our own numeral one is only another and fuller form of the same word. In such phrases as three shillings a pound, the article evidently has this meaning. The double shape of our article has led to a corrupt mode of writing certain words; thus from an eft was deduced a, neft, a newt. The letter a often appears prefixed to nouns so as to constitute a kind of adverb, as afoot, aside, aboard, now-a-days, etc. These, as Horne Tooke observes, are all abbreviations of on fote, on syde, on borde, now-on-daies, etc, which thus occur in our old English poets. This on is an Anglo-Saxon preposition with the meaning of in. In many words now in use, the a in the beginning takes the place of on. Alive, for instance, means on life, i.e. in life. So 'he fell asleep', in the old translation of the New Testament is, he fell on sleep. The a formerly often prefixed to our participles in ing, both in the active and passive sense, as the house is a-preparing, he is gone a-walking, has the same origin.
