    1. it but often

      but it often... (the words got transposed by accident I think)

    2. beings

      "being" (singular), perhaps "of any being of the field"?

    3. the youngest

      Up above there is an example with בתי הגדולה and we translated it "older", now here we're saying הקטן actually means "youngest" (not "younger"). Its fine as you have it, but I'm wondering if it will confuse people who might think that it ought to be "younger/youngest" just as the former one probably should be "older/oldest".

    4. have spoken

      Perhaps "said" or "spoke" rather than "have spoken"?

    5. My master is wise

      Perhaps this is irrelevant, but it could also be translated as "My master is a wise man"

    6. older

      perhaps "bigger/older" for the third line (more literal) translation?

    1. Compare 3 or more nouns

      or: Superlative RESOLVED

    2. Compare 2 nouns

      or: comparative RESOLVED

    3. connected to a noun

      sometimes called a "predicate adjective" or "verbal adjective"

    4. attribute

      sometimes called "attributive"

    5. Perhaps add a little section on כל (all, whole, etc.), which in English (and several other languages as well), is an adjective, but in Hebrew is technically a noun.

    6. adjective Article

      I think this article is a good place to make a brief reference to ordinal and cardinal numbers (so they can be linked).

    7. Divine epithet

      Should add brief explanation, like "sometimes the word "God" (in Hebrew: Elohim) can be used as an adjective to add more emphasis"

      Also, move below מאד so the two "very"s are closer together, going from normal very to very very.

    8. מן כל

      "Constructions with מן כל" Also, move under 5. as a subset of the superlative.

    9. but מן כל compares

      Add: "often, like here, shortened to מִכֹּל֙"

    10. It can mean “more.”

      I'm not sure what this means.

    11. linking verb

      Should briefly describe what a linking verb is. "A linking verb is a verb that links two nouns or a noun and an adjective. The verb "to be" is the most used linking verb, like in this example. The linking verb is almost never present in the Hebrew, but must be supplied in English."

    12. Therefore, if the adjective is indefinite and comes after the noun, it is not clear if it describes and attribute or is connected to a noun with a linking verb.

      Suggest rephrasing: "In this example the noun is definite, if both the noun and the adjective are indefinite, the adjective could either describe an attribute (see: above), or is connected with a linking verb."
