Abstract:

The study presents the linguistic issue about the emergence of vocative particle (yaa) and its rhetoric effects in Al-Mutanabbis' poetry. The study indicates a perspective on grammatical structure towards this phenomenon and afterward its implications that are identified with the context in which it is introduced, realizing that rhetoric neither originates from a solitary sentence, extricated from the content where it shows up nor the outside impacts encompassing it. There are additionally numerous patterns of vocative particle (yaa) [O] that showed up in Al-Mutanabis' poetry, these patterns are: the caller of proper or singular noun, the caller of intended noun and the caller of unintended noun. Examining this phenomenon doesn't intend to advocate it, yet as it is a feature that is deserving to be studied. Beside, its normal uses, this study aims to show how the vocative particle (yaa) [O] is used for the rhetoric purposes in Al-Mutanabbis' poetry. However, the study is going to follow certain notions taken from scholars such as Larson (2014) and Hill (2017) as its model.
