Step 3 : The indefinite article in Cree

The indefinite article is what we call the word a in English. The indefinite article is used with nouns in English (a book, a chair, a door etc.). To get started in Cree, pick just 3 important nouns. We suggest you learn the nouns masinahikan, tēhtapiwin and iskwāhtēm (book, chair, door). Once you have learned these nouns, you can then learn how to use each noun with the indefinite article. This is easy in Cree, because in Cree, there is no indefinite article. So the word masinahikan can mean book or a book, the word tēhtapiwin can mean chair or a chair and the word iskwāhtēm can mean door or a door. You can scroll to the top of this page to see a short lesson about the indefinite article in Cree including useful examples. Once you have learned to use the indefinite article with the Cree nouns masinahikan, tēhtapiwin and iskwāhtēm, you're ready to move on to Step 4 (the definite article in Cree).
