See also: nen


Alternative forms[edit]

  • nen (non-standard)




  1. (colloquial) Contraction of einen (a, an); accusative masculine singular of 'n

Usage notes[edit]

  • The form is sometimes seen in informal writing, but is 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 rarer: Ich will ’nen Kaffee.
