Abstract:   (5581 Views)
Ancient Muslim linguists paid due attention to both linguistic and non-linguistic contexts. An investigation into Hāzim Qarṭājannī's views can help in developing a relatively comprehensive framework in this respect. However, in general, ancient linguists' views are not the same and vary from social perspectives on language (i.e. paying attention to non-linguistic factors) to pure formalistic views. Hence, ancient Muslim linguists' views have to be considered as a whole to be able to reach a comprehensive framework on context and its uses in action. The reasons behind the ancient linguists' attention to context were threefold: evaluating the accuracy, analyzing the meaning of the texts, and regenerating the lost non-linguistic context from the linguistic context to arrive at the meaning. The present study investigates the ancient linguists' views on context mainly through the framework derived from Ḥāzim Qarṭājannī's "Minhāj al-Bulaghā".
