Articles: A new Article?

I think I invented a weird kind of article unqiue to my language. However, some
language probably has it.

ex) Se ja hlolar (I have a food). The absence of an article indicates "A"

Se ja I hlolar (I have the food)

Se ja ÿ hlolar (I have some food). In this case, ÿ is the partitive article

This is where the new article comes in. For example, when one is saying "I like
chocolate" they are saying they like choclate in general. Since the
article-less word in aryezi indicates "A" or "One", I had to invent a new
article to indicate an item in general. E. Hence Se ja E hlolar = I have food
(in general). Se dila coklat = I like A chocolate, and Se dila E coklat = I
like choclate.

Please comment on this, and tell me how good(or bad) this is. It might even have a
name, but I dont know.
