Abstract:   (2088 Views)
Sounds is the main tool for embodying meaning and conveying mental concepts to the audience. According to Ibn Jani, Ava has an inherent meaning, which is consistent with the term phonology in contemporary linguistics. Accordingly, the role of inductive sounds, the rhythm of which has a special meaning in mind, is significant in the analysis of the meanings of the Holy Quran. He also claims a semantic connection between derivatives whose original number and type of sounds are the same but different in the order of the letters. Since phonetic signification has a clear scientific basis, there must naturally be a semantic commonality between words with common letters (with special connotations), just as the discovery of semantic connection between derivative derivatives is one of the introductory lexical topics for understanding verses. However, the high number of words of great derivation in the Qur'an also necessitates attention to this type of derivation. Therefore, the present article seeks to investigate and investigate the semantic relationship between the derivatives of "(ح، ل، م)  " on a case-by-case basis with a descriptive-analytical method and through linguistic study of inductive sounds and discovering the fit between word and meaning. Examine its role in understanding the vocabulary of the divine word and answer the questions raised:
1. Based on the phonetic process, what are the semantic implications of the phonetic arrangement in the Qur'an with the focus on the sounds "(ح، ل، م )"?
2. According to Ibn Jani's theory, what kind of semantic fit does the derivatives of the sounds "((ح، ل، م " have?
3.  What is the function of explaining phonetic data in derivatives of "(ح، ل، م)  "?
Accordingly, the research hypotheses are:
1. The arrangement of letters corresponds to its semantic functions and implies the meaning of these words.
2. There is a semantic and sometimes contradictory semantic connection between the roots that have a derivative similarity.
3. Some of the functions of research are to express the coordination of the results obtained from Ibn Jani's phonetics and theory, to analyze the semantic relationship of derivatives based on the principle of substitution. Also, while pointing to the value of sound in conveying the meaning and conveying the message, it reveals another aspect of the verbal, spiritual and economic miracle of the Qur'an.
According to the Qur'anic evidences and citations of linguists, one of the tools of God to convey the meanings and concepts to the audience more effectively is to use phonetic art with the aim of contemplating verses and strengthening the verbal, spiritual and economic miracle of the Qur'an.
 The phonetic load of the letters is very close to the characteristics of the intended meaning and best conveys the meanings of the words. There is a coincidental and sometimes contradictory semantic connection between derivatives, because according to the phonetics of each sound, it is effective in embodying the meaning of a word. Also, based on derivation theory, it plays a role in receiving other meanings of derivatives with the same phonemes, just as the arrangements of "(ح، ل، م)  " in the context of phonetic codes indicate common meanings: hidden heat, softness, closure and strength..
