Entry any
Part of speech   preposition [list]
English translation   belonging to, for. Nihiny is used in the provinces for this. Any is also used between transitive verbs and proper nouns in the accusative case, as mamely any Jaona izy, He strikes John. Before vowels it is usual to write an apostrophe for the final y; and before consonants which require to be strengthened from close proximity to n, the y is substituted by a hyphen, and the consonant is strengthened accordingly. Thus we have: midera an' andriamanitra izy, He praises God; an-dRabe, Rabe's; an' olona, Somebody's; an' iza, Whose? An-jovy, Whose? In the provinces anahy and anakahy [any and ahy] are used for mine; and anazy for azy; and very probably the an- of the pronouns in the objective case comes from this, as anao, anay, antsika, anareo. [Richardson 1885]
