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, 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.

Etymology 2[edit]

Verb[edit]

asa

  1. Informal second-person singular () affirmative imperative form of asar.
  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.
