Why "om", while in all other questions "barbât"?


Om means in most contexts human, but it can also be used to mean man, like homme or uomo. Bărbat is the word that means man, and you're going to use this in 99.9% of your conversations :) Also be careful with the spelling, it's not hard, these sounds are present in English too, so better have a good start ;)


Om can be used as in human

    Is "eu sunt bărbat" the same as "eu sunt un bărbat"?


    No,because in romanian we use "un" as an article and a kind of counting,too.When you say "Eu sunt bărbat" you mean "I am a man" while when you say "Eu sunt un bărbat" you mean "I am one man".


    Depending on how you use it. When you refer to it as an attribute you don't to use un, but when talking about a specifical thing/being you should use the indefinite article. Here he defines himself as a man, one specifical being, so un is used. Hope my advice was useful <3


    Why not correct "eu sunt un bărbat" ?
