Sibawayh on ?imalah (Inclination)

This chapter describes different cases wherein the Ɂalifat structures are ‘inclined’ in the Arabic language based on Sibwayah's treatise. The Ɂalif ([A]) is inclined if there is a ‘broken [i]’ letter (maksuwr) after it. If after the Ɂalif ([A]) is ‘closed with a letter [u]’ or ‘open with a letter [a]’, there will be no inclination in it. They may leave out the inclination in three-letter structures with a wāw.

Keywords:   Sībawayh, Ɂalifat, Arabic language, Ɂalif, inclination, maksuwr, wāw
