Step 3 : The indefinite article in Nepali

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 Nepali, pick just 3 important nouns. We suggest you learn the nouns kitab, mets and toka (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 Nepali, because in Nepali, there is no indefinite article. So the word kitab can mean book or a book, the word mets can mean chair or a chair and the word toka 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 Nepali including useful examples. Once you have learned to use the indefinite article with the Nepali nouns kitab, mets and toka, you're ready to move on to Step 4 (the definite article in Nepali).
