Course Name: Introduction to Advanced Arabic Syntax: Ibn Hishām’s Sharḥ qaṭr al-nadā wa ball al-ṣadāII
Ibn Hishām (d. 761/1360) wrote Sharḥ qaṭr al-nadā as a commentary on his own work, Qaṭr al-nadā. Although, the content of Sharḥ qaṭr al-nadāis very similar to the content of his other famous work on grammar, Sharḥ shudhūr al-dhahab, the structure is clearer and provides more lucid explanations of syntax concepts. The novel structure by which he organized his work laid the foundation for similar works after him, and is still used today. This is a year-long course.
