The Evolution of Ḍād: A Synchronic and Diachronic Analysis of the Emphatic Arabic Ḍād


(12 صفحه - از 517 تا 528)

The purpose of this study is to: (1) examine how the original ḍād consonant and its description evolved from how Sibawayh documented it, and (2) discuss the historical context surrounding the distribution of the ḍād across the Arabic-speaking world. The ḍād is one of the most controversial consonants in the Arabic language, and therefore is a fascinating linguistic phenomenon to study. Almost none of the current dialects resemble the probable original variety introduced when the Arabic language was spread throughout the Middle East and North Africa around the birth of Islam. In the course of this study, the phonetics and phonology of the Arabic emphatic consonant ḍād will be analyzed in detail, as well as the broader history of this emphatic across the Arabic-speaking world. Specifically, the historical context surrounding the development of the consonant will be examined. In addition, ideas about both the contact situation surrounding the consonant and factors that may have influenced its present realization will be explored.
