Semantic Enhancement: A Quranic Semantic Approach to the Term "Azab" (Torment) (in Arabic)

Auther : Nawal Alhylwah

 

This study aims to trace the reasons far the longevity of some terms and their struggle against decline, where a term uses varying methods and strategies, phonetically, morphologically, semantically, and structurally, to consolidate its existence and continuity. These methods were traced through pronouncing the term azab (torment) in the Holy Quran, then attempting to develop a semantic approach towards the laws of semantic enhancement; both phonetically and conceptually, that revealed some of its manifestations, the most clear of which is phonetic enhancement. The strength of the term's sound as a trait and an outcome, its extension through articulation, the distances between its letter utterances and their succession increase the power of the term and enhance its existence.
The study reveals the impact of morphological enhancement on the term's longevity, through the moderation meter, in length and shortness, as well as its harmony with the phonetic laws that support the term and strengthen its consistency.
The structural enhancement was achieved by conjunction and adjunction, where suffixes refresh the term and keep it from declining.
The study also stressed the impact of semantic enhancement on the term's longevity through the multiplicity of meaning, making it usable in a number of fields, including exaggeration, condensation,formulation, and displacement. Despite the success of the study's hypothesis, it needs to be confirmed, thereby contributing to detecting the mysteries of the meaning and probing its methods.
