Advanced Description

Neun is the cardinal number that comes after acht (eight) and before zehn (ten) in the German counting system. It is written as '9' in Arabic numerals.

In German, neun is pronounced as [nɔɪ̯n]. The pronunciation of the vowel sound 'eu' can be challenging for non-native speakers, as it does not have an exact equivalent in English.

Like other cardinal numbers, neun can be used to express quantity or to indicate a position in a sequence. For example, 'Ich habe neun Äpfel' means 'I have nine apples', and 'Das ist das neunte Buch' means 'This is the ninth book'.
