Word 627: להעדפת (bl)

Let us assume that ל is the preposition that means to, for.

A word ending ת often is a singular construct of a feminine noun ending ־ה.

If so, we should find in our dictionary noun הַעְדָּפָה. And indeed: this is a feminine noun that means surplus, excess.

Then, to (the) surplus of, to (the) excess of.
