Marathi Articles

In English 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". However that doesn't exist in Marathi.

Grammar Tips:

There is no direct equivalence to articles(the, a, an, some) in Marathi.

Example: Majhyakadeel pustake mitrachya gharat aahet (The books I have are in a house of a friend)


Here are some examples:
