Alternative formsEdit




  1. (colloquial) Contraction of einen (a, an).

Usage notesEdit

The form is sometimes seen in informal writing, but 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 less frequent: Ich will 'nen Kaffee.
