The Importance of Reference Switching and its Role in Determining the Meaning of Quranic Variant Readings: An Analytical Study
This study aims to expound various types of reference switching, from the second person to the third and also to the first, and vice versa, in light of the principles of Qurʾanic variant readings. It explores the extent to which meanings, interpretations and derived rulings are affected by this variety of expression in Qurʾanic recitation. The author will explain the importance of reference switching and its impact on Qurʾanic variant readings and how the style itself is affected by those variant readings. The study will also illustrate the impact of this rhetorical style, with its various forms, on expanding the possible Qurʾanic interpretations by the way of generalizing the restricted and specific texts or restricting the generalized and absolute texts in terms of their meanings - an occurrence of sort will subsequently affect the process of interpretation. The impact of this reference switching also can be appreciated in expelling problems and confusions encountered by some exegetes and linguists, and how this notion can further emphasize the miraculous eloquence and inimitability of the Qurʾān.
