Hence each preposition gets its own POS. 2% of the total. These few entries account for 36% of Biblical Hebrew segments. Many parts of speech making up particles involve homography. 1 Miscellany The miscellany set contains four parts of speech that do not fit well elsewhere. Lapsii calami.

Their behavior is complex. They can operate within phrases, within sentences ( joining main clauses), and within discourses. Further, as has been shown elsewhere, 13 forms such as ‫ ּגַ ם‬/ ‫ גַ ם‬exhibit very complex distributional patterns.
