Chapter Summary

This chapter is concerned with cases in which a phrase atom is modified by two extensions. This construction should not be confused with that in which an extension takes another extension. If both an adjective and a d-phrase modify the same head, the adjective appears immediately after the noun. In this respect the Noun d-Noun behaves differently from CstrNoun-Noun in Syriac and Hebrew. It is hard to discern a functional difference between the construction in which two appositions are juxtaposed asyndetically and that in which an apposition is followed by a parallel element. There is one possible example where the head of the phrase is specified by both a demonstrative and an apposition. There are no other examples where a phrase atom is specified by both a demonstrative and another extension. Elsewhere in the Peshitta we do find such constructions.

Keywords: CstrNoun-Noun; d-Noun; Hebrew; Peshitta; Syriac
