Intentionality and its Effect on the Rules of Grammar (in Arabic).

Auther : Belkacem Hemame

Throughout our studies in the field of Arabic pragmatics, we find that one of the most important Pragmatic features of Arabic grammar is the "Intentionality (Al-Qasd or Al-Maqsidiyah)". We note that many rules of grammar are subject to the "speaker's intent", so the syntactical rule of the term or the composition depends on the type of intent. There are even certain grammatical rules entirely dedicated to this important pragmatic element, such as the rules that govern the composition of "pleading for help'' and "lamentation''.
Moreover, some of the ways in which "Intentionality" controls the rules of grammar are evident in the grammatical terms that came about with the emergence of "Intentionality", such as: specialty, presentation, warning, the intended indefinite article, and causative object.
The importance of the presence of "Intentionality'' is reflected even in the topics on morphology. As such, morphological formula may be mentioned yet may mean something entirely different; for example, the speaker may use an intensive or an augmentative while intending to refer to the active participle, and so on.
Accordingly, this paper tries to look for the grammatical issues that are controlled by "Intentionality".
Key Words: rules of grammar, pragmatics, Intentionality, speaker, Meaning.
