Reply to "(The) use of articles in/with. (The) article use in/with"

Hi, Alexey,

In your sentences immediately above (next time please number them differently from other examples in the same thread to avoid confusion, for example (5) and (6)), I think it is the function of the "adjective + use" phrase that defines the use, or non-use, of the article.

While "for felicitous use of..." is an adverbial of purpose, "an ethical use of..." is a subject complement. It would be clearly incorrect to say "it is ethical use of this resource to keep doing that."
