Abstract:

This book is a comprehensive study of the Kit?b of S?bawayhi (d. 180/796),
undoubtedly the most authoritative work in the long history of Arabic
grammar. It carefully examines the methodological concepts and methods that
underline S?bawayhi's analysis of Arabic and the way in which these methods
evolved at the hands of later grammarians. Placing the Kit?b within the
context of early Arabic philological activity, this book analyzes a wide
range of its passages and demonstrates the coherency of its author's system
of grammatical analysis and the interrelatedness of his analytical tools
and notions. In particular, S?bawayhi's huge influence on the overall
Arabic grammatical tradition is highlighted throughout the book. This
notwithstanding, it is argued that most later grammarians largely neglect
the semantic dimension which vividly features in S?bawayhi's approach to
language as a social behavior and his reconstruction of the internal
thinking of the speaker and the listener. 

<b>About the Author</b>
