la = the, so la mesa = the table. That's why it hurts my ears when Tagalog speakers use lamesa as "table" instead of "the table". The other one that gets me is time. For example, in Spanish a las once = at eleven, but in Tagalog alas onse = eleven o'clock.
Yes, I imagine it can be quite grating. How do you say eleven o'clock in Spanish?
Eleven o'clock = once en punto
