What are the differences between "el mar" and "la mar"?

As RAE states in the website it's an ambiguous name, i.e. it accepts both genders, so grammatically it would be correct to use any of them, unless for the expressions given there which just accept one.

Depending on the region one is more used than the other. For example in Spain the people who live close to the sea (sailors) tend to say "la mar", though in the rest of the country people use more "el mar". Also, "la mar" sounds more poetic, so it's probably more used in poems.

Anyway, there are expressions which are more typical to be heard with one gender (at least haven't heard in the other way), for example:

In masculine:

Bajo el mar

En el fondo del mar

Mar abierto

In femenine:

la mar de (when it means much) e.g. Había la mar de gente - this can only be used in femenine.

When speaking about the kind of the sea we have today it's usually only in femenine, e.g. these ones:

Mar alta

Mar gruesa

Mar arbolada

Mar rizada

  2. Ladki hone ke lakshan bataye
  3. 365 solar energy

What does mar mean?

To mar something is to damage, spoil, deface, disfigure, or scar it—either literally (such as by scratching or making a mark on an object) or figuratively (such as by spoiling a party by getting into an argument).

Mar is used somewhat more formally than many of its synonyms. Whether used literally or figuratively, it always refers to spoiling something by making it worse or less perfect than it was. Its figurative sense is more often used in writing (especially journalism) than in everyday speech. Mar can also be used as a noun, meaning a blemish, but this is less common.

Example: The senator’s campaign event was unfortunately marred by people who wanted to disrupt the event by interrupting her speech.

Where does mar come from?

Mar is an old word. The first records of its use come from before It comes from the Old English word merran, meaning “to hinder” or “to waste.” That word is related to the Old Norse merja, “to bruise,” and the Gothic marzjan, “to offend.”

Mar most commonly refers to scratching, marking up, or otherwise defacing the outside or surface of something. Tabletops often get marred by knicks and scratches. Your car door has probably been marred by getting scratched with keys or dented by other car doors. People sometimes mar wood surfaces by scratching words into them. In most cases, the thing that’s been marred usually started as a smooth or unblemished surface that has been made imperfect with some kind of marking.

Mar is used figuratively to refer to an action that has ruined or disrupted something, especially an event, as in The debate was marred by constant personal attacks. It can be applied in many different situations, such as describing how a sports team’s season was marred by injuries, or how someone’s success has been marred by scandal. Because it’s a short word, you’ll often see it used in news headlines to refer to such a situation, as in Fundraiser marred by protests. 

In all cases, mar is used to refer to a negative effect on something, often a permanent one.
