    כלשהי vs כלשהיא

    It was from the sentence '
    • קצרמר מספק התחלה כלשהי, או נקודת מוצא, לכתיבת ערך מלא.'
    From Wikipedia.

    Is this an example of a rule with words ending in aleph?

    Both כלשהי and כלשהיא are ok. The former is more common. In Wikipedia there's an explicit decision to spell כלשהי.
    No such rule in regard to final א.

    actually, i tried to find a reference of that in the academia's website and didnt, i think it might be better to write without the alef
