Would you explain why it is el hacha afilada, but it is una ave bonita, please. Both have feminine modifiers. I’m becoming more confused as I go.
Here’s an explanation that I found elsewhere:
“Feminine nouns that begin with a stressed "a-" or "ha-" sound in Spanish use the definite article "el" in the singular."
The example given is:
"Who's incredibly attractive; a real night owl. Sí, pero indica que no es un ave de paso.”
The above example uses un, not una.
