Latvian[edit]

 ala on Latvian Wikipedia
Ala (1)
Trušu ala (2)

Etymology[edit]

The usual theory considers ala to be a borrowing from Middle Low German hol (depth, hole, cave), or maybe from the same form in Middle Dutch or German Low German (East Frisian); cf. German Höhle (cave); note, however, that this Germanic word is masculine, from which a feminine a-stem borrowing into Latvian would seem unlikely.

A different view suggests that ala could also reflex of an old Proto-Indo-European stem *h₁el-, *ol-, *al- (to flow, to drain) with various Baltic reflexes: dialectal alots, alogs, standard avots ((water) source), alksna, aluksna (miry, swampy place) (cf. place names like Alūksne, Alūkstes), Lithuanian alė́ti (to flow, to drip). The original meaning of ala would thus have been “(water) source”, from which “place (e.g., cave, rift, pit) from which water springs” and finally simply “cave,” possibly under the influence of the aforementioned Germanic words.[1]

Usage notes[edit]

  • The feminine noun ala 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 ala
  • 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.
