Usage notes

The feminine noun abra 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 abra

However, if an adjective intervenes between the article and the noun, the article reverts to la.

abra (infinitive: abrir)

  1. First-person singular (yo) present subjunctive form of abrir.
  2. Third-person singular (él, ella, also used with usted?) present subjunctive form of abrir.
  3. The third-person singular of abrir in the imperative.
