Show Summary Details


This chapter describes inclined letters that do not have the Ɂalif ([A]) after them, if the [r] after them is ‘broken with an [i]’. The letters will have the same status if they were before the [A] and there is a [r] after the [A], even if they were ‘raised’ ones. The inclination does nothing to the [A].

Keywords: Ɂalif; [A]; Arabic language; ra; [r]; break [i]; raised letters; inclination
