Lesson # 47 - Prepositions

Today's lesson involves prepositions, which are useful in any language!  You may recall that a preposition:

"A preposition links nouns, pronouns and phrases to other words in a sentence. The word or phrase that the preposition introduces is called the object of the preposition.
A preposition usually indicates the temporal, spatial or logical relationship of its object to the rest of the sentence"

So without further ado, here are prepositions in Surath:

  • about - illid
  • above - l'el min
  • across - lobar min  
  • after - bathar
  • against - darqul
  • along - lkhabar min
  • among - benath
  • around - khawidhranid
  • at - illid
  • before - qam
  • behind - bathar
  • below - khothid
  • beneath - khothid
  • beside - l-dipnid
  • between - benath
  • beyond - lobar min
  • but - illa
  • by - b
  • despite -________
  • down - l-tekh
  • during - egaha
  • except - illa
  • for - ta
