A (An) Unique Item

Hey, Dario,
I wanted to further try to explain this one. It would be correct in English this way:

an item
an exceptional item
a unique item

The reason for using "a" before unique is because the sound of this "u" is that of a consonant. Sounds like YOU.
Notice that it would be correct to say "an ugly duckling" because the sound of this "u" is a vowel. Sounds like UGH.
"An exceptional item" because the sound of the "ex" is eh (a vowel sound).

This makes absolutely no sense except it is done because it makes speaking easier.

Language can be really stupid sometimes, huh!
((hugs))
