USE OF THE INDEFINITE ARTICLE
The word : “մը “ corresponds to the indefinite article. It is placed after the noun but not attached to it. It is used only in the singular.
Example : տունhouse
տուն մըa house
However, before the verb “To be”, Indicative present tense, 3rd person of the singular “ է “ or before the word “ալ “ (= also), one must extend the article in order to give a precise meaning.
Example : Սիրուն տուն մըն է :This is a nice house.
Ծառ մըն ալ կայ :There is also a tree
