292 The Noun [ §

by E. Kautzsch
292 The Noun [ § 98 a, b § 98. Numerals, ( b) Ordinal Numbers. a The ordinal numbers from 2 to 10 are formed from the correspond-ing cardinals by adding the termination 86 § ) -_ י h),  before which another י ~ also is generally inserted between the second and third radicals. They are as follows: שני second, רביעי, שלישי ( like רבעים , רבע , רבע , without the prosthetic א , which appears in , ארבע & c), חמישי or חמשי ( which, according to Strack, is always to be read for עשירי , תשיעי , שמיני , שביעי, ששי,( חמשי . The ordinal first is ex-pressed by ! ראשו ( cf. § 27 w),  from ראש head, beginning, with the termination Π ( § 86 F).  On the use of אחל as an ordinal in numbering the days of the month, cf. § 134 p;  in such cases as Gn ι5, 211,  the meaning of first is derived solely from the context. b The feminine forms have the termination ית __, more rarely ( and only in the case of 3 and 10) יי׳ —. They are employed also to express fractions, e. g. חמשית fifth or fifth part, עשירית and עשייתה tenth part. Side by side with these, in the same sense, there are also forms like רבע and רבע a quarter, חמש a fifth part, and with the afformative P, עש תן ( plur. שרונים ^) a tenth part; these are to be regarded as abstracts, and are denominatives from the cardinal numbers. Cf. finally שבייע έβδομάς, a week; עשור a decade ( of days), and also the tenth day. On the expression of the other relations of number,  for which the Hebrew has no 3pecial forms, see the Syntax, § 134 q and r.   Chapter Home  | TOC  | Index
