Borrowed from French havre.

abra f (plural abras)

  1. small bay, inlet
  2. (Latin America) glade, clearing

Usage notesEdit

  • The feminine noun abra is like other feminine nouns starting with a stressed a sound in that it takes the definite article el (normally reserved for masculine nouns) in the singular when there is no intervening adjective:
el abra
  • However, if an adjective, even one that begins with a stressed a sound such as alta or ancha, intervenes between the article and the noun, the article reverts to la.
