Noun

ave f (plural aves)

  1. bird
  2. (Chile) fowl, poultry
Usage notes
  • The feminine noun ave 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 ave
  • 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.
