AbstractThe Phenomenon of Illusion in Arabic Language Sayyed Mohammadreza Ibnorrasool * Amir Saleh Masoomi ** Abstract Illusion is a linguistic phenomenon in Arabic grammar. By means of it as a language tool, the classical grammarians attempted to account for some words and grammatical phrases which were not in agreement totally with common rules of Arabic syntax. This linguistic tool has been found in different ways in Arabic grammar and we can recognize almost many examples of it in literary works like Quran and ancient poems however, the grammarians just explain it in a particular part of syntax called "conjoining based on Illusion". Thus, by analyzing some examples and investigating their words, the authors tried to reveal other aspects of illusion neglected by classical grammarians. As a result, three different kinds of illusion were found in Arabic language. Three new terms were suggested for them: Syntax Illusion, Lexical Illusion, and Semantic Illusion. Keywords : Arabic grammar, Syntax Illusion, Lexical Illusion, Semantic Illusion . * Assistant Professor, Department of Arabic Language and Literature, University of Isfahan,E-mail: Ibnorrasool@yahoo.com. ** PhD student in Arabic Language and Literature, University of Isfahan, E-mail: email@example.com.
