GalicianEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Old Portuguese ela, from Latin illa (that), feminine of ille. The dative is from Old Portuguese lle, from Latin illī.

PronounEdit

ela m (accusative a, dative lle)

  1. she

Usage notesEdit

The accusative form a has variant forms la and na. These alternative forms appear depending on the ending of the preceding word. The form la is used when the preceding word ends in -r or -s. The na form is used when the preceding word ends in -u or a diphthong. These alternative forms are then suffixed to the preceding word.

The accusative also forms contractions when it immediately follows an indirect object pronoun. For example, Dou che a (I gave you it) contracts to Dou cha.
