The Maǧmūʿa min šiʿr al-Mutanabbī wa-ġawāmiḍihi, the ‘Collection of some verses of al-Mutanabbī and its unclear points’, composed by the renowned Sicilian grammarian ʿAlī Ibn Ǧaʿfar Ibn al-Qaṭṭāʿ (d. 1121 A.

Abstract

The Maǧmūʿa min šiʿr al-Mutanabbī wa-ġawāmiḍihi, the ‘Collection of some verses of al-Mutanabbī and its unclear points’, composed by the renowned Sicilian grammarian ʿAlī Ibn Ǧaʿfar Ibn al-Qaṭṭāʿ (d. 1121 A. D.) was edited for the first time by Umberto Rizzitano in 1955 and then by Muḥsin Ġayyāḍ in 1977, but it has never been studied from a morphological and lexical point of view. This paper sets out to assess the contribution of Ibn al-Qaṭṭāʿ to grammatical and philological studies in the Siculo-Andalusi context. In particular, this study focuses on some morphological issues presented by the Sicilian Grammarian, such as ilḥāq (BAALBAKI 2002, 2008), taḫfīf (BAALBAKI 2008), the structures of the demonstrative pronouns and the ismu l-fāʿil. Moreover, some verses of which Ibn al-Qaṭṭāʿ gives a lexical/semantic commentary will be analyzed. To highlight Ibn al-Qaṭṭāʿ’s contribution to grammatical theory, the excerpts proposed will be compared to Ibn Ǧinnī and al-Iflīlī’s commentaries on al-Mutanabbī’s poems.
