I know it's okay to leave "hain" off the end of the sentence with a negative (naheen) ... but is it also okay to leave it in there? "Larke chai nahi peete hain" ?
That's 100% fine. However, some Hindi speakers leave it out in daily speech.
I'm from a Lucknow, a major city in the development of Hindi/Urdu and no one here leaves out हैं from their sentences.
I'm from New Delhi. It sounds weird without the हैं.
Without hain it sounds like an incomplete sentence.
Shouldn't the nasalising bindu remain though - 'piiten'?
You are correct
With a negative (when using "nahin"), you don't have to use "hain".
Why we are not using hain please some one give me a reply it left me in confusion
Good question. With a negative (when using "nahin"), you don't have to use "hain".
I think they should give option to leave hain out or keep it
i miss the word hain at the end of the sentence
In this case, "the boys" would refer to a specific group of boys in English - how would a sentence saying that all boys don't drink tea (Boys don't drink tea) look like ? Thank you!
I think You would use "hota":
Larke chai peete nahin hote hain
Hota /hote (plural) /hoti = habitual or always
Why Hai does not complete the sentence
I love this question
If you include "hain" in this sentence, would "naheen" be before or after "peete"?
