This module aims to develop a thorough understanding of Arabic Syntax (‘Ilm al-Naḥw), the science that discusses the states of word-endings once the words have been composed into a sentence. It will instil an appreciation of the important role syntax plays in enabling the reader to correctly understand verses of the Qur’an, traditions and other classical texts. It will examine a complete range of syntactical rules and structures and to explore how changes in grammatical composition affect meaning; and develop skills in critical reading and understanding classical Arabic, enhancing the student’s ability to refer to the wealth of Arabic resources required for Islamic studies.
