The Bambara indefinite article

The indefinite article is what we call the words 'a' and 'an' in English. The English indefinite article 'a' does not exist in Bambara. Unlike English, a noun on its own can be considered indefinite without the need for a specific word to show this. Nonetheless, the number '1' can serve as an indefinite article in Bambara. The number '1' is 'kelen' in Bambara.
