      The Bug:

      Some tick strings are missing articles and are unclear.

      For a bit of context, there are three articles within the English language. These are "a", "an", and "the". Articles are used before nouns. Considering that articles are present throughout many other strings within the game, this introduces an inconsistency.

      With the "A tick sprint/step interrupted" strings, these strings are confusing and aren't exactly clear. These strings are shown when the player stops the current tick sprint/step. Using the word "A" within the sentence "A tick sprint/step interrupted" is ambiguous. It can lead players to wonder what tick sprint/step was acutally interrupted, when in reality, only the current tick sprint/step was interrupted. These strings should be changed to clear up confusion.

      Affected Strings:

      Before reading the table, please note the following:

      • Words colored in GREEN are correct.
      • Words colored in RED are incorrect.

      commands.tick.step.stop.success A tick step interrupted Interrupted the current tick step https://crowdin.com/translate/minecraft/10038/enus-engb#5362594 

      Steps to Reproduce:

      1. Display any of the affected strings as listed above by using the command provided below and replacing "XYZ" with the string's translation key.
        /tellraw @s {"translate":"XYZ"}
      2. Observe the string's said error(s).

      Observed Behavior:

      The strings don't have articles where necessary or are unclear.

      Expected Behavior:

      The strings would have articles where necessary and would not be unclear.
