Zero article

From Teflpedia

A zero article /zɪərəʊ ɑ:tɪkəl/ is a grammatical article that is envisioned to be present when a noun is not preceded by a determiner (including the articles a, an or the); i.e. the determiner syntactic slot is empty.[1]

This generally indicates lack of possession; lack of definiteness, and being either an uncountable/mass singular or a plural.
