An Exploratory Analysis of Semantic Senses of Verbs in "Atabatal Kataba"

  • Abbas Motamedi


The sixth century of Hijrah, (AH) has witnessed deep challenges in Persian literature prose and poetry, via imageries, secondary or figurative senses in praising Persian monarchy, which was considered a religious act. In doing so, Ferdowsi has relied on a bundlee of poetic epic imageries in his "The Book of Kings"; the prose imagery formats were introduced by Joweyni's "Atabatal Kataba" via verbs. Great Persian writers have also relied on semantic literary arrays in a competitive form to show up their talents in reflecting styles and genre to that end. They have also tried to use lexis or diction to represent their talents in playing with senses, emotive meanings or synonymous discrimination power, which have altogether become their specific style, genre or discourse level of creating novel masterpieces. "Atabatal Kataba" is a type of reflection in writing a book with such stylistic synonymous discriminations & differentiations. It does not necessarily follow the format of one specific semantic framework, formerly usual with known standards or definitions of words and phrases. Verbs in this book of Act do not principally follow the same semantic frameworks. On the other hand, while semantic degree of verbs are generally linked to the structural limitation scopes of topics, abstract fields are specifically so tailored to the format of the topics, to better fit the events that previously were in alternative semantic frames. The present paper intends to favor corpora analysis in an exploratory design to represent enough evidence in support of the hypothesis.
