PronunciationEdit

Etymology 1Edit

From Old Spanish faya, from Latin [materia] fāgea, from fāgus, from Proto-Italic *fāgos, from Proto-Indo-European *bʰeh₂ǵos. Compare Portuguese faia.

NounEdit

haya f (plural hayas)

  1. beech, beech tree

Usage notesEdit

  • The feminine noun haya 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 haya
  • 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.
