Etymology 1Edit

Root
ר־ב־ה

From one of the roots ר־ב־ה (r-b-h).

רַב (ráv) (feminine רַבָּה, masculine plural רַבִּים, feminine plural רַבּוֹת)

  1. Many, much.
  2. Great.
  3. Enough: more than is needed.
Usage notesEdit
  • (many, much): In its sense “many, much”, רַב may be considered a determiner rather than a regular adjective.
  • (enough): In its sense “enough”, רַב is used “impersonally” — that is, without a personal subject — and is therefore traditionally classified as an adverb.
