There is no reason for these words to exist. <Hu'>, <leS>, <ben>, and <nem>
are all plain old regular nouns, and as such, they can have <'ar> after
them, just like any other noun. For example: <ben 'ar bIbogh?> >>
Since they are "plain old regular nouns" as you say, why are the numbers
attached to them as prefixes. Should not the numbers be separate words
preceding these nouns?
I deduce from this combination that these so-called "nouns" have changed their
identity and have become time words. Time words act mighty like unto adverbs.
