"A tall man!"

Translation:एक लंबा आदमी!

November 16, 2019



Does लम्बा आदमी also work for "a tall man!"?

I'm a bit confused about indefinite articles in Hindi.


As I understand it, for spoken Hindi, you do not need the article. However, it is good to be specific. लम्बा आदमी = tall man एक लंबा आदमी! = a tall man

The word एक is used for both "a" or "an" and also represents the number one, so एक लंबा आदमी also = one tall man
