Proposed patch fixes a number of typos (mainly about misusing "a/an") in the docs, docstrings, comments and error messages.

Should exception messages be corrected in old versions, or just 3.6?

Apart from the few changes with comments, the rest look good to me.

I found some more cases (my patch is independent of Serhiy’s).

Thank you all for your reviews. Martin's patch LGTM.

I agree that it would be safer to not change error messages in bugfix releases. Here is consolidated patch with fixed errors.

I think there are two outstanding problems; see Lib/tkinter/tix.py and Misc/HISTORY.
