Classification of Metaphors from Jurjani's Viewpoint
Abstract:   (510 Views)
Abdul Qadir Jurjânî, with his two famous books, is the most important scholar of Islamic rhetoric. He is the founder of rhetoric in the Muslim world. One of Jurjânî’s most prominent accomplishments is his comprehensive classification of metaphors. First of all, Jurjânî distinguishes between non-expressive and expressive metaphors, and then presents subclasses for expressive, or “useful”, metaphor. Most writers before Jurjânî used a particular kind of metaphor to present examples for clarifications in their discussions, but Jurjânî distinguishes different kinds of metaphors whose mechanism he does not reduce into a single one. In his classification, Jurjânî approaches metaphors innovatively. This article aims to study this classification from a fresh perspective.
Keywords: Jurjânî, Metaphor, Classification
