Chapter Summary

This chapter explains how particles and words resemble in Hebrew language. It holds for אוֹ, אִם, כִי, לוּ, אַל and פֶן that if they exhibit the characteristic features of nouns and convey a meaning, they should be considered nouns. But if they do not exhibit such (characteristic features of nouns), they are particles. The same is true for words that resemble particles, such as אשר, מֶה, מִי, כַמָה, מָתַי, אַיִן, אָן, פֹה, כֹה, מַדוע, אזַי, הֵן, יַעַן, ביַעַן. If the mentioned words exhibit the characteristic features of nouns, they are nouns, and if they do not exhibit them, they are particles.
