Synonymy in the Akkadian Language

Synonymy in the Akkadian Language

Adab AL Rafidayn, Volume 37, Issue 48, Pages 27-65

Synonymy is an old linguistic phenomenon. It means that many words refers to one meaning. For instance, the Arabic verbs قام and نهض (qama and nahatha both lit, mean woke up) and the verbs جاء and أتى(ata and Ja‘a both lit, mean came), so these dichotomies refer to same synonymous meaning. Arab linguists are of two groups as far as synonymy is concerned. Some of the linguists deny synonymy, others assure it. Moreover, in all languages there are many reasons behind this linguistic phenomenon. The interactive movement among the dialects may be the most remarkable reason behind this phenomenon. Some dialects apply a word to indicate certain meaning, others may use another word to indicate the same meaning. Similarly, loan words also have their role to circulate this phenomenon. In this study we shall present some synonymous words in the Akkadian language. These words are of verbs, nouns, adjectives and adverbs. Finally it is worth mentioning that this study may deepen our understanding of the Akkadian language.

This research is, in general, a theoritical in the social theory. It relies on bases, facts and pieces of information, some derived from the theoritical literature of sociology and others from history, philosophy in addition to the researcher’s opinion accumulated from his humble knowledge.
The research can be summarized by the following descriptive scheme: Judging the existence of social and epistemic dualism, which takes the form of the final formula of social experiment –according to the philosophical language-, is the picture of material (which is society).
In the lourse of this research, the dimension of dualism have been made clear by specifying the epistimic and idiomatic meaning of “limit and base” as a first attempt to specify a methodology for epistemic sociology. This is conditioned by the dualism following two framewoks:
The first is the society. It is the real existence and the source from which facts and experiments are derived to be formulated within the framework of thought (the second framework of the dualism).
The research was able, at the end, to formulate the content of bases and limits within the framework already explained.

Education between 1780-1909 caused a gradual development in the states responsibility for education in England. A radical transition took place from the policy of total indifference to the establishment of the theory of the division of educational responsibility between the parents and the state.
There was a prevailing feeling that indicated that priority must be given to the elementary (primary) education , because it was not allowed to ignore children especially after their employment in factories was cancelled.
At a time when the states attitude turned to industry, it was necessary to give all a good deal of the principled education. As a result, a great number of the local educational authorities came into being. Some of them were confined to the elementary (primary) and the others supervised them.

Our study of the tetra –letter repetitive verb which consists of two repeated letters in the form (فعلل) in the quranic expression has an effect in the meaning that the quranic expression tries to express. these tetra –letter has come in very few positions which we have counted as seven verbs ,these are (حصحص) , (دمدم) , (زحزح) , (زلزل) , (عسعس) , (كبكب) and (وسوس) .
