HSD221 – Arabic Rhetoric

This module aims to investigate the three major disciplines of Arabic Rhetoric: Word Order (‘Ilm al-Ma‘ānī), which is concerned with semantic syntax; Figures of Speech (‘Ilm al-Bayān), which discusses allegorical and non-allegorical significations, linguistic allusion and linguistic signalling; and Embellishments (‘Ilm al-Badī‘), which shows the language user how to bestow decorative lexical and semantic features upon his or her speech. It will provide students with a greater appreciation and understanding of Arabic in general and of the linguistic style and eloquence of the Qur’an in particular.
