Great word, and I just can't remember what it is. Starts with "a", I think. The antonym is formed with prefix "an".

I'm not sure I can answer this correctly because I'm a little unclear what you're asking. Are you referring to a class of nouns that only combines with the definite article? One of these is substantives though this doesn't start with an 'a'.

You may have some luck looking in the GOLD ontology http://linguistics-ontology.org/gold .
