Why is "la hambre" not like "la hache"?

Hi Allison,

We say "el hambre" not "la hambre" because in this case it follows the general rule for words starting with a "stressed a or ha", which take the article "el" and not "la".

The word "hache" should follow the same rule, but it is an exception, as stated in the lesson.

Un saludo
