Chapter Summary

Prepositions link verbs, nouns and adjectives to nouns. Unlike Hebrew nouns, verbs and adjectives, prepositions have no number or gender markings. The preposition may be attached to the noun or stand on its own as an independent word. In Hebrew, a preposition cannot be followed by a pronoun instead, it is inflected with the appropriate pronoun suffix. The chapter discusses the formal characteristics of the prepositions and the meanings of the prepositions. It also discusses the use of prepositions within the sentence.

Keywords: adjective; gender markings; Hebrew; nouns; Prepositions; pronoun suffix; sentence; verbs
