Article[edit]

'nen

  1. (colloquial) Contraction of einen (a, an).

Usage notes[edit]

The form is sometimes seen in informal writing, but not all too common in actual speech because einen tends to be further contracted to merge with 'n. Thus: Ich will 'n Kaffee. ("I want a coffee.") alongside less frequent: Ich will 'nen Kaffee.
