Historical Linguistic remains and their relevance to descriptive systems (in Arabic)

Auther : Abdul-Rahman Ayoub

 

One may be inclined to attribute differences (other than innovations) between classical Arabia and modern dialects to laws of linguistic change such as analogy, specialisation, broadening and include ancient Arabic dialects and other Semitic languages, one finds similar

Changes featured there.

This can only be explained in one of two ways.

  1. Either these differences are not linguistic changes but historical remains that have been passed down to modern dialects orally and not through the literary texts known as Classical Arabic.
  2. Or they are linguistic changes that follow general ten dencies of change in the whole of the Semitic family. Such tendencies were operative between proto-Semitic languages or say between Aramaic and its Eastern and Western Dialects.

The paper ends by emphasizing the importance of Historical linguistics in the study of language.
