Peace and prayers be on Prophet Mohammad and his clan and companions. Ibn Hisham Al-Ansary’s book The Intelligent’s Guide to Parsing Manuals stimulated numerous explanations and notations. The best of these explanations is The Elequent’s Guide to the Explanations of the Intelligent’s Guide by Mustafa Ramzi b. Haj Hassan Al-Antaky (Dec. 1100 A.H.). This book is a through analysis and interpretation of Al-Ansary’s book. It also surveys the views and opinions of early and late grammarians when dealing with Al-Ansary’s grammatical views.

I have to stand here with one of the poets of the Abbasid era, his surname was (Wawa Damascene), (his death 370 AD), I deal with his colors using in his poems, his ability to use the colors with its reference in language and concept, also I deal with his use for the colors in direct and indirect ways, I show his passion to materialize the senses and his passion to product references negative use for the colors as well as black and white. In addition to what he had gave from poems as paints full with colors gave the audience picture reveal that the poet was a painter can draw with words.
I find with this study that there are many factors interior and exterior stand for this art of the color employment, some of them: the tendency to flirtation in his poems, the commonness of passion and imagination, with the addition of what the environment of Damascus where he lived which was full with gardens and flowers and reflected in his poems.

This paper reconsiders the problematic ending of Cormac McCarthy's 2006 novel The Road. The novel has two endings. The second ending is a short paragraph which is antithetical in tone and perspective to the first ending of the novel. Although much critical debate and speculation ensued over this aspect of The Road, no conclusive or satisfactory interpretations were advanced up to now. The current study starts with the violation of the generic conventions this second conclusion brings to argue that this ending provides a new sense of closure to the subversive narrative McCarthy constructed in this novel. This generic rift is read as a result of a reversal of the post-apocalyptic classic ending with a new beginning. The second conclusion reverse new beginnings with archival ending in the sense that Jacque Derrida formulated in his latest work Archive Fever.

L-users, virtually, are keen on the psycholinguistic tasks to be performed while interacting. Sometimes one might be baffled with the influx of neologisms due to their inconsistency or multiplefaced constructions. To debaffle such rather enigmatic forms, a linguistic explanation and analysis of their production are conducted hoping to show how they work.
Being linguistically fluctuated, we opt for general viewing for neos endorsement by lexicographers who are more adept at manipulating them. Either accepted or not, one should surf their influx and probe their four phases to be finally established. Factors involved in the interpretability of the psycholinguistic aspects of neos are reviewed. Other factors account for their production, especially when a speaker cannot remember a particular word coined alternatives leading to constraints on the processing of producing new forms.
Some in-a-go new entities enter the sensory temporary storage of L-users where some are preserved for a notable brief period to let the brain process them; or to be discarded in a part of a second. If rehearsed or recognized, these new inputs are transferred into the short-term storage; the working memory.
The axiomatic quest of how such errors have been addressed was processed, and whether a single exposure already leaves a trace in lexical memory. It rests upon the idea that a neo is a word/phrase that fills a gap or expresses an idea in fairly different ways which mainly come up due to need, necessity, contact or a tongue slip.

Postcolonial literary theory critically studies the cultural, societal and historical analysis and modes of discourse of the people of the colonies in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Third World. Moreover, postcolonial studies deal with forms of imperialism particularly the domination of some nations and people by other nations. Thus,"this rethinking of empire has brought the United States into focus as an object of postcolonial [studies]both as a contemporary empire and as itself a postcolonial nation"(Abrams,1960:307,8).African-American studies, however, fit together well with postcolonial studies as it "forms a number of angels interrogates the relations between the west pretty much the rest of the world in the light of the history or Western expansion and military and economic domination"(Bertens,2001:112).On this basis, it is possible to read and analyze the African-American literary themes through a postcolonial vision. However, the prevailing theme that most African-American poems tackle in common is the theme of racial discrimination, but it is rather meticulous to say what the poems share in terms of theme instead of mode.
The present study aims at examining Langston Hughes's selected poems to judge whether the modes of these poems are romantic or racial and the motive behind this. This will give a better understanding of the personal and the psychological factors that affected the life of the African-American individual in the heyday of the racial segregation.
