Lesson 9: Adverbs

When -h occurs at the end of a word it indicates direction toward (just as in Hebrew). Sometimes -t occurs with the same sense. Suffixed -m is used as an accusative in many instances. Sometimes a preposition used in one line is balanced by -m in the next. Also, enclitic -m can be added to a verb for ballast in a hemistich. -m can even be attached to a noun in the construct state.

The noun bt may be used adverbially; i.e., bt ikl means "in the house of eating".

ahr is also used adverbially and means "afterwards" while when ap is used in this way it means "also, even".


al = surely
idk = then
bl = surely
kn = thus
mid = much

ASSIGNMENT: Memorize the adverbs and the vocabulary above -- and then translate KTU 4.392.
