High Frequency Word in Spanish 5 – A

High frequency words in Spanish – 5

a

Coming in at number 5 is the mono-syllable “a”. In fact, all of the top ten high frequency words in Spanish are monosyllabic.

I suppose this is for a reason – if you say a word a lot, it is going to be bashed about quite a lot and finishes up by being a tried, tested and robust monosyllable.

“A” has a variety of different meanings but the main ones are “to” or “at”.

Examples of use are:

Voy a la playa (I am going to the beach).

¿A qué hora llega el tren? (At what time does the train leave?).

“A” is pronounced “ah”. (Click below for an audio of this post).

“A” is number five then in the Spanish top one hundred words.
