Chapter Summary

The present chapter is concerned with those phrases that consist of a phrase atom and one extension. The extension itself may take other extensions. It discusses adjectives, d-phrases, appositions, demonstratives, and prepositional phrases. The focus is on phrases in which the head takes one extension. The chapter shows that that more complex structures occur if the extension itself takes further specifications. In Syr one is advised to be on his guard for a wicked counsellor, which is less radical than Heb, which says that one should not trust any counsellor at all. Syr does not have [Noun [Adjective]] in each case where Heb has [CstrNoun-(Abstract) Noun]. When two nouns are modified by the same d-phrase, the d-phrase follows the first noun, and is resumed by a suffix attached to the second noun. The d-phrase may itself be extended by an apposition, an adjective or ad-phrase.

Keywords: adjectives; appositions; d-phrases; demonstratives; one extension phrases; phrase atom; phrases in Syriac Text; prepositional phrases
