Rules of Appositive Classification in the Grammatical Heritage
This paper deals with similarities in pronunciation and meaning
among appositives which were behind devoting an independent
section in all grammatical books to appositives, although
each type of them has its own rules and signs. However, This
distinction did not prevent them from being classified under one
section with one basis that is agreement between main and
subordinate appositives as well as the existence of agreement in
semantics related to definite and indefinite noun, plural, dual, singular
and gender adjacent with little exception as in adjectives of cause .
This paper, is therefore divided according to types of appositives into
four sections: Adjective, Affirmation, Apposition and Coupling.
Each section explains aspects of agreement between the main
and subordinate appositives especially the semantic features
specifically related to each subordinate appositive. Due to the
domination of the structural aspect and the clarity of accord in pronunciation, this becomes the basis of classification of appositives in general or the sub-division of the types of each subordinate appositive in particular. This distinction of each partdid not prevent appositives
from being classified under one label namely the agreement between
main and subordinate appositives.
Due to the dominance of the structural aspect and clarity of
accord in pronunciation, it was the most clear basis and in
the classification of appositives.
