Show Summary Details


This chapter concludes the section on the inclination of [A] with the extension of the process beyond the letter [A] to the other letters, or, more specifically, to the ‘motions’ of the other letters, noting that ‘motions’ are considered to be parts or pieces of ‘the letters of length’. The long [A] and short [A], the ‘open [a]’, and the other ‘motions’ are now subject to the process of inclination when followed by the [r] ‘broken with an [i]’, that is, by [-ri].

Keywords: inclination; [A]; letter motions; [-ri]; Ɂalif; Ɂimālah
