Romanian Articles

Learning the Romanian Articles displayed below is vital to the language. Romanian 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", Romanian has 4 definite articles:

-ul (masculine singular), baiatul (the boy)

-a (feminine singular) fata (the girl)

-i (masculine plural) băiții (the boys)

-le (feminine plural) fetele (the girls)

Note: Neuter nouns take the masculine article in the singular form and the feminine article in the plural form.

Indefinite Article:

While we have (a / an / some) in English as indefinite articles, we also have un/o, niște in Romanian .

In general, whenever (a, an) are used in English you, you need to use (un) or (o) to say the equivalent in Romanian.

Un (masculine singular), un băiat (a boy)

O (feminine singular) o fată (a girl)

Niște (masculine/feminine plural) niște băieți (some boys)

Niște (feminine plural) niște fete (some girls)
