Usage notes[edit]

This originates as a case form of a defective noun فَوْق ‎(fawq, location that is above). It is declined normally when definite or in the construct state, e.g. الفَوْقُ ‎(al-fawqu, the location that is above), فَوْقُهُ ‎(fawquhu, his upper part). Other forms are the adverbial accusative in the preposition فَوْقَ ‎(fawqa, above), the genitive in the expression مِن فَوْقٍ ‎(min fawqin, from above, above) (also with an attached pronoun, as in مِن فَوْقِهِم ‎(min fawqihim, (from) above them)), and the irregular expression مِن فَوْقُ ‎(min fawqu, (from) above).
