את

Definition from Dictionary, a free dictionary
Love is made by two people, in different kinds of solitude. It can be in a crowd, but in an oblivious crowd.

Hebrew

Etymology 1

Preposition

אֶת (et)

  1. Used to introduce a semantically definite direct object.
  2. (archaic) To, with.
Usage notes
  • The two senses are inflected differently; the pronoun-including forms of the definite object marker begin with ot-, and the pronoun-including forms of the archaic preposition begin with it-. Even though the preposition's standalone form is archaic, its pronoun-including forms are still in use, as the pronoun-including forms of the (now suppletive) preposition עִם (im), with).
  • In the event of a semantically indefinite direct object, את is simply dropped; no other preposition is used instead. Note that the choice to include or not include את is based on semantics rather than form; את is used when the direct object is a proper noun, or a personal pronoun (in which case it is incorporated into the form of את), or a noun phrase beginning with ה־ (ha-), the), or a noun phrase headed by a noun compound ending in one of these.
