Nin pred., its position gives it the minimum of emphasis, and it expresses (or resumes) the subject as unobtrusively as possible : thus a.

(In all such cases the predicate is not referred directly to the subject, but, the subject being made a casus pendens, it is resumed by the pron., and the pred. thus referred to it indirectly. By this means the sentence is lightened and relieved, esp. if the subject consist of many words: in Gn3i 16 for instance, the direct form of predicate V? '3 waso n'nps ?»irri na>s -ftyn-ba wjnin would have been heavy and inelegant.) So c. after "K5>S in a negative sentence, Gn 7 2 17 12 R?
