Example text

The schema ‘X is closer to Z than Y \ which captures the inner logic in Ibn Jinni’s thinking, serves in our view as one further piece of evidence in support of the autonomy thesis in AGT. Although the ‘distance’ in explanatory perspective is said to be ‘shorter’ between grammar and scholastic theology than it is between the former and jurisprudence, it is still the case that an epistemological disjunction is thought to obtain between the members of the first pair, as it does between those of the second.

This array of different theoretical mutations testifies not just to the ingenuity of modem scholarship, but also to the richness and, perhaps more significantly, elasticity of AGT. The second approach uses modem linguistics more eclectically as an interpretative instrument by means of which AGT can be “interrogated” (Bohas et al. 1990). A commendable feature of this approach is that it can be applied in a topic focussed fashion, concentrating on the micro-level of theoretical interpretation, thus leaving the global construction of the macro-theoretical edifice to proceed in a piecemeal fashion.
