Die Wortstellung des Subjekts „Gott“ im Koran

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article examines one aspect of word order in the Qurʼān, which is the position of the subjects ’allah and rabb in simple verbal sentences. To present the word order types existing in the Qurʼān, the sentences were classified in three groups: the verb’s type and its aspect (aktionsart), the sentence type, and the type of the particle preceding the sentence. Four factors affecting the word order were found: time and aspect, different functions of a specific particle, rhetorical purposes, and emphasis.
