Usage notes[edit]

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

  2. Formal second-person singular (usted) present indicative form of asar.
  3. Third-person singular (él, ella, also used with usted?) present indicative form of asar.
