The Special Term And its Applications

Dr. Ajeel- an-Nashmi

The investigation of “The Special (term) “ is considered one of the topics of general semantics which is employed in the deduction of judgements from texts and one of the divisions of the word as pertaining to its meaning.

The “special”(term) can be divided into “the unlimited” and “the restricted” and into “the command” and “the prohibition”.

Definition of “the Special” :

First: The “unlimited” and the “restricted”: The unlimited term is any term which stands for whatever is common of its kind. On the other hand, the “limited” or ‘restricted’ is not indicative of what is common of its kind but is indicative of the essence (of the referent) being restricted by one of its restriction.

The judgement pertaining to the “unlimited” or unconditional and the “limited”: is to act according to what the ‘unconditional’ stands for unless it is restricted, and to act according to the restricted and its restrictions unless it is rendered unconditional. However, fundamentalists have different opinions when the term occurs in the context as unconditional and in another contexts as restricted.

Second: The Command:

The command is the order given with authority usually with the right to be obeyed.

The fundamentalists differed (in interpreting ) the command which follows banning or prohibition. Some of them interpreted such a command as indicative of permission, but others considered it as indicative of obligation. The fundamentalists also disagreed about the matter of taking an immediate action or delay in taking an action.
