ArticleEdit

'nen

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

Usage notesEdit

  • The form is sometimes seen in informal writing, but is 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 rarer: Ich will ’nen Kaffee.
