"The attitude"

Translation:La actitud

May 24, 2018



Why not "el actitud", since the first sound of this word is "a"? For example, we say "el agua" instead of "la agua" even though "agua" is feminine.

That works when the noun begins with a stressed -a: el Agua, el ALma, el Ɓguila.
When the feminine noun does not begin with a stressed -a, "la" is used: la actiTUD, la aMIga, la aBUEla.

An old comment but a useful one. I made the same error as Kortaggio and was quite proud of myself while doing so! thanks!
