Agua

EtymologyEdit

From Old Spanish agua, from Latin aqua (compare Catalan aigua, French eau, Galician auga, Italian acqua, Occitan aiga, Portuguese água, Romanian apă, Sardinian abba), from Proto-Italic *akʷā, from Proto-Indo-European *h₂ekʷeh₂. See English ea.

  • (file)

NounEdit

agua f ‎(plural aguas)

  1. water
    Quiere un vaso de agua fresca.‎ ― He wants a glass of cold water.
  2. body of water
  3. rain
  4. (archaic) river, stream
  5. (slang, in the plural) urine
  6. (Guatemala) pop, soda (soft drink)
    Voy a comprar algo de agua.‎ ― I'm gonna buy some pop.
    Deme agua Pepsi.‎ ― Give me Pepsi.

Usage notesEdit

  • The feminine noun agua 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 agua
  • However, if an adjective intervenes between the article and the noun, the article reverts to la.

In Guatemala, since agua prototypically refers to a soft drink, the phrase agua pura is used to refer to water.
