Usage notes[edit]

  • The feminine noun áncora 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 áncora
  • However, if an adjective intervenes between the article and the noun, the article reverts to la.
