Alternation Phenomenon in the Use of Prepositions and Conjunctions in AL- Anaam and AL-Araf Quranic Suras
In most cases, the Holy Quran uses language features in the way that contrary to the common standard language to draw the reader's attention. Therefore, we have examined one of the techniques that have been frequent in the Quranic text and its purpose by tackling alternation phenomenon. Alternation means using a word (noun, verb, preposition) interchangeably with another word that is close to its meaning. However, we select alternation of prepositions and conjunctions and we have examined the idea of interchange of prepositions in the Quranic text in order to understand the meaning. The aim of this study is to examine prepositions interchangeability to express the main meanings of each of the items and study modes of prepositions syntactically. This was done through analyzing the main structures and meanings of the structure. The results suggest that preposition interchangeability occurred more in these two sample Quranic verses. Then, the preposition "lam" is repeated frequently. Hence, the high frequency has made this phenomenon a style in these two verses. However, as for conjunctions, we recognized that interchangeability in “fa” and “thomma” was more frequent because of the context in which they are used and this has to change the meaning. This study was conducted using the analytical descriptive method.
