Quranic Grammar - Specification (تمييز)

The specification relation tamyīz (تمييز) places a dependent noun into the accusative case manṣūb (منصوب) and is used to specify the degree of the head word. An example of tamyīz may be found in verse (69:32):

 (69:32:7)
fa-us'lukūhu
insert him."
 (69:32:6)
dhirāʿan
cubits,
 (69:32:5)
sabʿūna
(is) seventy
 (69:32:4)
dharʿuhā
its length
 (69:32:3)
sil'silatin
a chain,
 (69:32:2)

into
 (69:32:1)
thumma
Then

Fig 1. Specification relation in verse (69:32).

In the above example there is a specification dependency between words (69:32:5) and (69:32:6).
