Apposition is a relation between two nouns referring to the same meaning or pronoun and noun. These words may be separated from one another by other words. Example:

Your son, Horus

sA.k @r

The shoemaker, Hetpi

Tbw @tpi

Also, apposition exists in the following forms:

Hnqt hnw 1

Beer, one cup.

m tA-wr AbDw

In the Eighth Nome, Abydos.

In the previous examples we notice that the apposition clarifies the phrase.
