Authenticity of Classical Arabic and Its Relation to Aristotelian Logic (In the Opinions of Some Orientalists and Arab Scholars)
Shamsuddin, Salahuddin Mohd.; Ahmad, Siti Sara Binti Hj.
World Journal of Education, v7 n4 p122-131 2017
Classical Arabic was originated in the family of Semitic languages as a result of mixing among the languages of the people who lived in the Arabian Peninsula. Nobody knows the exact time of its emergence. We had some knowledge by some stone monuments and oral histories indicated that some distinct languages were in the south and north of the Arabian island. Some of their images remained for us that were sometimes seen in some Arabic dialects later in the aspects of their expression, derivation and synonymous words. The age of this classical Arabic is mentioned by al-Ja?i? in his book: "The Animal", which is between 150-200 years before Islam. There is no doubt that Arabic Language has evolved through the ages and has become a standard language after it was audible, especially when it established its linguistic bases to protect its originality and Arab nature from the melody entered from the non-Arabs who accepted Islam, after the mixing among Arab Muslims and the other people. It is true that Arabs had used the Aristotelian logic in the development of their linguistic sciences, but their Arabic was not affected by the Aristotelian logic and their Arab culture did not lose its originality and nature.
