Bengali Articles

Learning the Bengali Articles is very important because its structure is used in every day conversation. The more you master it the more you get closer to mastering the Bengali language. But first we need to know what the role of Articles is in the structure of the grammar in Bengali.

Bengali articles are words that combine with a noun to indicate the type of reference being made by the noun. Generally articles specify the grammatical definiteness of the noun. Examples are "the, a, and an".

Grammar Tips:

Definite Article:

Unlike English, which has only one definite article “the", Bengali has no binding for using definite articles: Articles are not always used in a sentence. Use of articles depends on mood (or sense) of the sentense. There is no gender difference while using articles.

ta (singular), or boi ta(the book)

Indefinite Article:

While we have (a / an / some) in English as indefinite articles, we also have ei/ oi/guli in Bengali.

In general, whenever (a, an) are used in English you, you need to use any article equivalent in Bengali (ek, ekta, kichhu). But Bengali articles are independent of the gender of the noun or adjective.

ekta (singular), ekta boi (a book)

ek (singular) ek deshe ek raja (a king in a country)

kichhu (plural) kichhu boi (some books)

oi, ei and guli

Example: oi boiguli (those books) ei bondhur barite achhe (are in the house of this friend)
