"Vowels" the Weak Point in Arabic Phonetic Studies (in Arabic)

Auther : Fawzi Al-Shayeb

Classical Arabic studies, in the field of Phonetics, emerged from the ideas that were established by Al-tajweed, which were distinguished by their rigour.

Nevertheless, Arabic studies – in the field of Phonetics – suffer a basic problem, which is the neglect of vowels, especially the short ones. These vowels were viewed, in those studies, as being of secondary importance because of their varying from one time to another, and sometimes because of the confusion that was caused by the orthographical system which did not distinguish between long vowels and semivowels. Such confusion might have caused some kind of cutting of the relation between the morphological system and linguistic reality.

Contrary to the beliefs of classical linguists, this paper demonstrates that vowels – in terms of acoustic description – appear as the most constant component.
