Item description for Les Voies De LA Transmission Du Kitab De Sibawayhi (Studies in Semitic Languages and Linguistics) (French Edition) by Genevieve Humbert & Hospers J. H....

The Kitab of Sibawayhi, compiled in the 8th century, is the oldest existant Arabic grammar. It has gone through many editions, but all are based on a copy from the 18th century. The author of this important book has discovered 11 manuscripts in addition to the 66 mentioned by F. Sezgin (GAS, IX). More than 40 were used in this book to contribute to a new understanding of the history of the text. She has now definitively shown that all of the recensions, oriental and occidental, follow closely the--now lost--copy of al-Mubarrad (d. 9th century), which functioned as a true vulgate. Only one manuscript, found in Milan, managed to escape its influence, and adhered to the rival Kufan grammatical tradition. This manuscript provides a better version of the text and makes a new reading of the Kitab possible FR Le Kitab de Sibawayhi, redige au IIe/VIIIe siecle, est la plus ancienne grammaire de l'arabe. Ce livre a connu plusieurs editions, mais toutes sont basees sur une copie du XVIII siecle. G. Humbert a recense 77 manuscrits de l'ouvrage. Plus de quarante d'entre eux, presentes dans un catalogue qui suit l'analyse, ont ete mis a contribution pour ecrire l'histoire du texte. Il apparait que toutes les recensions (orientales et occidentales) dependent etroitement de l'exemplaire, aujourd'hui perdu, d'al-Mubarrad (mort au IXe siecle), qui a fonctionne comme une veritable vulgate. Un seul manuscrit, conserve a l'Ambrosienne de Milan, a echappe a son influence et se rattache a la tradition grammaticale de Koufa, rivale de Basra. Ce manuscrit restitue une meilleure version du texte et rend possible une nouvelle lecture du Kitab. CURRIC. Genevieve Humbert, chercheur au C.N.R.S. (Institut de Recherche et d'Histoire des textes, section arabe), a consacre sa these (Paris, 1992) a l'histoire du texte du Kitab de Sibawayhi. Elle a publie plusieurs etudes sur le sujet et sur le livre arabe medieval.
