Show Summary Details


This chapter describes cases in the Arabic language where [A]s are prevented from inclination, and considers situations where the items are inclined or raised earlier before the prevention. It also examines seven letters that prevent [A] from inclination. When the letters are raised, the [A] rises, the action is of one type as they near the [A], and it becomes easier for the Arabs to speak the words. If one of these letters were before [A] by a letter and it were broken with an [i], it would not block the [A] from inclination.

Keywords: Arabic language; inclination; raised letters; break letters; inclination prevention
