Chapter Summary

There are three types of connectives. The first is a connective that introduces a clarification, as in ושתי טבעות זהב. The second type is the connection of one clause within a sentence to another clause, and this is a connective that introduces a different item, as in השמש יצא על הארץ ולוט בא צערה and הנער בא ודוד קם מאצל הנגב. The third type is the connection of individuals by means of the particles waw, לא, אוֹ, and כִי. It is not necessary to have both parts, and it is not allowed to give up both parts, so that nothing remains but to have one of the two items, while it is not specified which one.

Keywords: clause; connectives; particles; waw
