The Solecism by People in Power in Islamic and Umayyad times A Sociolinguistic Study


  • Salem Al-Aqtash


This research aims to clarify the ancestors’ point of view in people in power conducting Solecism, particularly in Islamic and Umayyad eras, which threatens the validity of the Arabic language with the absence of language common sense. It is convinced that there is an intrinsic link between power and language, which lies in how multilingualism should be contained as a result of populations and languages intermingling and maintaining the authentic linguistic model representing linguistic identity. This could be achieved through investigating the linguistic traces that have been observed in books, translations, assemblies and news devoting to the language soundness and purification, studying and analyzing the linguistic issue observed to determine the scientific value learned from it, identifying ancestors’ methodology against people in power in monitoring and jealousy of the Arabic language. Finally, establishing a static attitude rooted in mind, which could be a lifeline to the modern Arab nation being immersed in the Solecism because of languages intermingling, in the absence of a linguistic observer. Therefore, the progress lies in referring to the enriched resources and figures as an attempt to perceive the culture and the linguistic belonging related to linguistic observation to maintain written and spoken Arabic language sound and clear of Solecism and to trace ancestors by taking the linguistics error seriously and rejecting it in order to rectify the approach and eliminating errors..
