Abstract

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.
