Abstract: This study analyzed the uses of English articles in three SMA textbooks using Murphy's (2011) framework. The data for this study were also obtained from interviews with three English teachers at different schools. The result indicated that from nine uses of definite article proposed by Murphy (2011), there were only two uses found in the textbooks. In addition, from three uses of indefinite articles proposed by Murphy (2011), there were only two types of uses found in the textbooks. The interview with the teachers revealed that they had different views about the concepts of the English articles and what article uses should be taught to the students. The differences may have been basedon their teaching experiences.
