Abstract [en]

The present article is restricted to some examples of quadriradical verbal formations with the pharyngeal phoneme /ʿ/ as secondary in Arabic dialects. The /ʿ/ shows two opposite developments in Semitic languages. Some dead as well as living Semitic languages show its disappearance, while some others have preserved it intact in both orthography and pronunciation. To the latter belongs literary Arabic as well as Arabic dialects, where the strong presence of the /ʿ/ has even given rise to its occurrence as secondary. This is also true of some quadriradical verbal formations in Arabic dialects. The emergence of the /ʿ/ as secondary often causes difficulties to recognize a word in its original form. In the present article, an effort is made to establish the origin of a group of examples of such verbal formations, explaining at the same time the reasons which cause the emergence of the /ʿ/ as secondary.
