Usage notes[edit]

The feminine noun arpa 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 arpa

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


Turkish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Old Turkic arpa (“barley”), from Proto-Turkic *arpa (barley), possibly from Proto-Altaic *àrp`á ("barley, millet"). Cognate with Old Japanese apa, from Proto-Japonic *àpá ("millet"), Manchu arfa, from Proto-Tungus-Manchu *arpa ("barley; oats"). Possible cognate with Ancient Greek álphi (άλφι), "mixture of barley, dish". The Turkic form is sometimes compared with Proto-Iranian *arba- (corresponding to Greek alphi), cf. East Iranian forms going back to *arpasyā- (or *arbasyā), but it is not identical (loss of the final syllable is hard to explain). On the other hand, the Proto-Japonic parallel *àpá ("millet") is a strong argument in favour of the Altaic origin of the Turkic form.
