The Arabic Verb: Form & meaning in the vowel-lengthening patterns

The Arabic Verb: Form & meaning in the vowel-lengthening patterns (Studies in Functional & Structural Linguistics, Book 63) by Warwick Danks
English, Arabic | 2011 | ISBN: 9027215731 | 282 pages | PDF | 1,5 MB

The Arabic verbal system is, for most grammarians, the keystone of the language. Notable for the regularity of its patterns, it presents the linguist with an unparalleled opportunity to explore the Saussurean notion of the indivisible sign: form & meaning. Whilst Arabic forms are well-documented, the elucidation of the corresponding meanings has proved more challenging. Beginning with an examination of the verbal morphology of Modern St&ard Arabic, including an evaluation of the significance of the consonantal root, this volume then concentrates on establishing the function of the vowel-lengthening verbal patterns (III & VI). It explores issues of mutuality & reciprocity, valency & transitivity, ultimately focusing on atelic lexical aspect as the unified meaning of these patterns. This study is rich in data & relies extensively upon contemporary examples (with transliteration & translation) to illustrate its arguments, adopting an empirical structuralist approach which is aimed both at general linguists & at specialist Arabists.
