          Abstract

          This atricle starts from the basic premise that language is a complete system which is formed of mutually supporting subsidiary structures. On this premise, it critically discusses the view prevalent among linguists that the lexicon of a language does not in itself represent a language system; rather it is a record of individual words, without organised form that might be said to render it a precise discipline distinguished by its own distinctive rules. The study points out that it was these very same linguists who observed the existence of semantic fields in which individual words can be classed, and who claim that any given two words may form two different semantic fields which either may or may not be suitable for combination in a given collocation. This has been expressed by scholars of ʿilm al-bayān as the principle that a lexical item can be predicated to something that is either contextually appropriate or inappropriate to it.
