Usage notes[edit]

The feminine noun hada 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 hada

However, if an adjective intervenes between the article and the noun, the article reverts to la.
