Etymology 1[edit]

From Latin [materia] fagea, from fagus.

Noun[edit]

haya f (plural hayas)

Usage notes[edit]

  • The feminine noun haya 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 haya
  • 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]

From Latin habeam, first-person singular present active subjunctive of habeō (I have, hold).

Verb[edit]

haya

  1. Formal second-person singular (usted) imperative form of haber.
  2. First-person singular (yo) present subjunctive form of haber.
  3. Formal second-person singular (usted) present subjunctive form of haber.
  4. Third-person singular (él, ella, also used with usted?) present subjunctive form of haber.
