Hello all, I have a linguistic question to pose to our international community of English speakers. Do you use "the" in front of University (or a variation, i.e. Uni) to speak of a particular one? And when you speak about it, how do you conceptualize it? Is it an instituion, a place, a person (of sorts)? I first started wondering about this when I met some of my Brit and Aussie friends and noticed they had a different way of referring to it than I did. Anyway, if anyone can give their personal experience that would help me, thanks.
