Perhaps, if one wants to sound like they are living in the Victorian Age, at least in the USA
I didn't know that could be a feminine interpretation of the word 'Author'
Interestingly in Spanish it is not politically incorrect to have a feminine form for some jobs.
It's her pronunciation of the the vowel "u", sounds very similar to an "l" sound in this case
en espanol el articulo para el femenino es la y para el masculino es el, pero en ingles es igual "the" por lo tanto si no especifican no lo pueden poner mal.
So just to be clear because I am still a beginner in Spanish, if the word ends in "a" you use "la"? or is there any other cases where "la" may be used.
