widening, plurals of few, , plurals of many, the Qur'anic text


Among the linguistic phenomena that came in the Qur’anic expression, which most linguists considered a departure from the usual manners of saying and patterns of speech, The presence of the plurals of the few are distinguished, explained, or described by the plurals of the many. Linguists and commentators were hesitant to judge it, except in a few places. Some of them took it out of grammatical analogy and linguistic rules, and some of them referred it to interpretation and assessment. To be in line with their rules and linguistic laws, and it is not hidden that what is in this of turning a blind eye to the meaning that is appropriate to the eloquent Qur’anic intent, or appropriate to the envisaged legal ruling, and that the Qur’anic text. The safest and most accurate expression of the most accurate meaning, as it has a blind eye to the privacy of each building in a sense; And the significance of the composition and the context, in which it ignores the adverbs of the case and the position and their impact on all levels of the language, and what is mentioned in it. It is dispensed with plural without reference to the reason for this use and the circumstances of the saying, and the conclusion came from the research. That the use of the plural of the few with the plural of the many in it leads to a broadening of the connotation and the inclusion of the will of the meaning of the two constructions together with a concise phrase and with the presumption that the distinguishing of each building or interpreter or its description came upon the other building, and based on the circumstances of the situation, the position and the social significance that comes to mind and is imagined from the situation. The perspective of it is from the innermost parts of man and his feelings in certain circumstances, as well as the psychological or emotional significance in the Qur’anic discourse, as it is a linguistic text from the transmitter of a scholar who knows a deep and comprehensive knowledge of the insides and the psyche of the addressee and his emotions of connotations. The use of the plurals of the few with the plurals of the many in the Qur'anic context is an interpretation, distinction, or description. It does not justify its use in any place of speech in generalization. it is subject to intent and indication; To strike a rhetorical joke in certain places of speech systems.
