Proper nounEdit

arca de la Alianza f

  1. Ark of the Covenant

Usage notesEdit

  • The feminine noun arca de la Alianza 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 arca de la Alianza
  • 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.
