Usage notes[edit]

  • The feminine noun agua 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 agua
  • However, if an adjective, even one that begins with a stressed a sound such as alta or ancha, intervenes between the article and the noun, the article reverts to la.

In Guatemala, since agua prototypically refers to a soft drink, the phrase agua pura is used to refer to water.
