Nouns that take masculine article
Why is "la hambre" not like "la hache"?

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.
