Word 27: מאת (bl)

This word does usually appear in dictionaries.

But be careful! We do not find it under letter מ but under letter א.

Of course this is illogical from our viewpoint... Only... this is quite logical from the Hebrew viewpoint.

Because this is a word resulting from merging of two prepositions: first, preposition מִן after having dropped its final nun; second, preposition אֶת, that is both the direct object mark and a preposition meaning with.

The word as such is to be translated by when it means the author of a given work.

Pronunciation: me-et
