Step 4 : The definite article in Nepali

The definite article is what we call the word the in English. The definite article is used with nouns in English (the book, the chair, the door etc.). Using the nouns kitab, meč and toka (book, chair, door) which you learned in Step 3, learn how to use each noun with the definite article. This is easy in Nepali, because in Nepali, there is no definite article. So the word kitab can mean book or the book, the word meč can mean chair or the chair and the word toka can mean door or the door.
