Japanese term or phrase: 名詞先行文
Dear translators,

This is another term which appears in a university Arabic course description.

Here is the sentence:

基本的文法事項(格変化のバリエーション、2段変化の意味、複数のバリエーション、特別な形容詞とその女性形、名詞先行文の過去と否定等)について学び、アラビア語の格変化に対する理解を深めることを目指す

I know it has something to do with 'antecedent' but can't pinpoint the exact term.

Any help would be appreciated,


Nick
