Article Noun Agreement Spanish

September 11, 2021

Hola Clarrish, great question!! The rule is that in the second part of a composite name, we do not use articles with the following formula: (number) + (preposición) + (number). For example, – she is a university professor – Ella es profesora de universidad. Instead of “profesora de una universidad. – It has a collection of baseball cards – Tiene una colección de tarjetas de béisbol. In this example too, we cannot say “de unas tarjetas” or “de un béisbol”. Hope it helps!! Instead, we look at some common places and how they behave with Spanish articles in some common expressions. As we have learned, a singular feminine noun will normally use the article la. In Spanish, another specific article is used with singular and plural nouns: el hombre, los hombres; la mujer, las mujeres; el coche, los coches, la casa, las casas. Spanish items can be omitted in very special cases. For example, the article in Spanish is used when we are talking about a particular person or thing, for example.B.

“Do you have the tickets?” or “The road is crowded”. There is, however, one exception to this rule. The indeterminate article cannot be concluded contractually if it is part of a trademark, a proper name, a company name, a place name or other. Adjectives can come before or after nouns, or they can be used with verbs such as ser (“to be”) to describe nouns. But (with the exception of immutable adjectives), they always correspond to the nouns they describe both in number and sex. In English, the indeterminate article is the word “a”, “an” or “some”. On the other hand, if you do not want to refer to certain things or people, but rather generalize, you should use an unspecified article. However, if the name begins with a underlined letter, the article changes to el. This exception exists to avoid the clumsiness of having two side by side. For example, the name águila (eagle) is feminine. However, to say “the eagle” you need to use the male article: el águila.

If you spend some time and energy learning the pros and cons of Spanish articles, you`ll notice a quick jump in your knowledge of Spanish. Their sentences sound more naturally and more like those of a native speaker. The particular article can be omitted if it is used with ordinal numbers for the names of kings and queens: in English, the same specific article is used with all names, men, women and others: man, woman, car, house. You should also add the indeterminate article if you want to qualify the state of being with an adjective or with more information. The noun-adjective agreement is one of the most fundamental aspects of Spanish grammar: adjectives must correspond to the nouns on which they refer both in number and sex. The Spanish article in particular corresponds to “the one” in English. There are four specific Spanish articles. Las familias felices se divierten en la playa rocosa. (Happy families have fun on the rocky beach.) Felices is plural because familias is plural. The feminine form rocosa is used because playa is feminine. The and read are specific women`s articles.

The Spanish indeterminate articles are: un, una, unos and unas, which are the possible translations of the English articles “an” or “a” in the singular or “some” or “a few” in the plural. . . .
