Norme grammaticale et description linguistique : Le cas de l'arabe
Generally speaking, the grammatical tradition is either disparaged or venerated, but never questioned. In analyzing the Arab grammar tradition we are trying to better define the contributions and especially the dead ends brought about by regarding tradition as sacred. The result is a severing from the object described, which is daily language. This paper tries to prove that an objective approach to language and tradition could help better adapt the methodological tools to the object described.
