The early years of the Abbasid period have also been characterised by the emergence of the notion of icjmz around which there has been debate between men of letters and the scholastics. As a result of this debate, we witness the birth of al-xarfah4 notion which is introduced by Ibrmhlm b. Saiymr al-Nazzmm (d. iz, al-Bmqillmni, and al-Rmzi. During this early period of the Abbasid time, the Arabs have been well aware of rhetorically effective discourse and comments are often made on eloquence and rhetoric.
In other words, the juxtaposition of the constituent units of a given proposition is context-sensitive and pragmatically motivated. Rhetoricians have continued their interest in other notions such as well-formedness, eloquence, and whether the form of the lexical item takes priority over its signification. Although rhetorical studies have been mostly restricted to word level, discourse has also been at the centre of rhetorical analysis. Discourse, in terms of rhetoric and meaningfulness, is of four major categories: 1 2 3 4 a discourse that is phonetically and semantically well-formed; a discourse that is phonetically well-formed but semantically ill-formed; a discourse that is semantically well-formed but phonetically ill-formed; a discourse that is both semantically and phonetically ill-formed.
Most importantly, we have witnessed the reference to semantic syntax in Arabic in the early years of the third Hijrah century. However, semantic syntax has not yet taken a well-defined theoretical shape. This is referred to as the order system (al-nazm) at this stage and is concerned with the interrelation between syntactic patterns and their semantic values and communicative functions. References to the linguistic notion of order system can be regarded as the seeds which have come to fruition through the introduction of the theory of word order in the fifth Hijrah century.
