Preposition

  1. Of (used instead of de with quantities, to emphasize the quantity rather than the thing quantified, or to indicate the unity of a shape and its material, a container and its contents, or a group and its members)[1][2]

    kilogramo da viando — a kilogram of meat
    grupo da homoj — a group of people
    kvar metroj da ĉi tiu ŝtofo kostas naŭ frankojn — four meters of this cloth costs nine francs

    listo da kandidatoj — a list of candidates (of their names: cf. listo da kondiĉoj de la kandidatoj 'a list of conditions from the candidates')
    skatolo da ĉokolado – a box of chocolates (a boxful of chocolate: cf. skatolo de ĉokolado 'a chocolate box' (the box itself, made for chocolates, but now perhaps used to store paper clips), and skatolo el ĉokolado 'a box (made) of chocolate')

Usage notes

Unlike most prepositions, da cannot occur after a verb. It necessarily links two nouns.

The article la does not occur after the preposition da, and this is often mistakenly understood to mean that the quantity introduced by da must be indefinite. However, there is no such restriction, any more than there is with possessive pronouns such as mia 'my', which also do not allow the article. Because of the unity of the two nouns linked by da, only the phrase can be modified by the article, so it must precede the first noun. See the fourth and fifth examples above.

Some Esperanto dictionaries substitute listo de and tuto de for listo da and tuto da. This is an error, an influence of Western languages which do not have an equivalent to da.

Romanian

Pronunciation

Etymology 1

Most likely from a Slavic language (e.g. Bulgarian, Serbo-Croatian, Russian). Another (controversial) theory argues that it perhaps derived originally from the Latin ita, one of several ways to say thus, so or yes, and that it was influenced by Slavic languages before reaching its present state. [1] See also dacă.

da
