Please - when I am given the sentence with a gap in it and choices, I would like to listen to the sentence after I have selected my answer and been told if it is right or wrong. It would really help me to be able to listen to the sentence afterwards to be able to match up the writing with the sound.
I would drop the है in this sentence. In negative sentences, any conjugation of होना is dropped, unless it is the main (only) verb.
मैं पढ़ता हूँ = I read
मैं नहीं पढ़ता = I don't read
मैं लड़का हूँ = I am a boy
मैं लड़का नहीं हूँ = I am not a boy
Listening to the audio it seems to be "nehī" not "nuh-hī".
Same thing when i check google translate or listen to hindi speaking people.
Are there many ways to pronounce it?
ह tends to mess with the vowels next to it, at least in informal speech. For example, वह and यह are more typically pronounced "vō" and "yē" according to my professor (from Jaipur), and बहन ("sister") is pronounced more as if it were written as बैहैन.
I learned नहीं as "nahīn" and not "naihīn" but I imagine the difference depends on level of formality and region?
