Different sources remark that Darwin is the first who, in 1872 , attracted the attention to facial expressions indicating that they reveal the thoughts and intentions of people more truly than words because words may be falsified . What is said by Darwin was rejected first, but after more than a century it was accepted and proved by evidence collected by some other scholars. This paper is intended to prove that Darwin's ideas are strongly supported by verses in Al-Qur'an Al-Kareem. Those verses highly emphasize the relationship between emotions and facial expressions before about one thousand and a half years. It is also intended to prove that what is lately uncovered through the facts of science is previously decided by the Holy Qur'an.

Assist. Instructor Afaf Sami Salih

Anbar University Journal of Languages & Literature, 2011, Volume 3, Issue 1, Pages 340-378
DOI: 10.37654/aujll.2011.64151

The prior goal of the study is to provide a rather comprehensive analysis of the variable negative forms and patterns manipulated in Alice Walker's The Color Purple as a trustworthy source of information about the distinctive features of the African American Vernacular English(AAVE henceforth). The study assumes that AAVE shows quite distinctive syntactic features that make it considerably different from other varieties of English. The most prominent among these features is the forms and patterns of negation that are employed heavily in Walker's The Color Purple .The study focuses mainly on forms like: negative concord, negative inversion, negative postposing, and so forth. The use of AAVE in the novel is intentional as it consolidates the identity of the Afro-American oppressed character. Walker insists that Celie , her main character in the novel, , uses AAVE even though her character has changed dramatically from a naive black woman into an independent one.

The present study attempts to analyze stress patterns of Iraqi Arabic, particularly, Hity Arabic, an accent spoken in Hit town 175 k.m. to the south west of Baghdad. The study is specifically concerned with the assignment of primary stress at the word level within the recent manifestation of metrical approach outlined in Hayes (1995).According to metrical framework, stress is a hierarchy of rhythmic patterns in which one syllable scores relative prominence with relation to an adjacent one. Metrical stress theory assumes that generating the correct stress patterns should be done taking syllable quantity, foot inventory, directionality and extrametricallity into consideration. The study assumes that metrical approach succeeds in predicting both primary and secondary stress patterns in Iraqi Arabic in a straightforward fashion.

This study aims at showing Eugene O'Neill's attempt to find a medium which satisfies his needs as a dramatist. At the beginning of his career, he began as a writer of realistic plays. But his attempts to find answers to all the big questions in life made him believe that he should try to put in his plays exaltation and an urge towards life which is derived from dream- like realms. Therefore, and without him knowing that, he produced anew dramatic trend that might be read in the context of magic realism.
