—There have been debates and discussions on
linguistics` argumentations used by both schools Basra and
Kufa in order to impose their principles in modification of
Arabic Grammar. This kind of scenario contributes some
negatives and positives views among the scholars claimed that
BaÎra and Kufa were the two cities which permanently rivaled
each other. In principle, BaÎra and Kufah do evidence two
differing linguistic and grammatical approaches. The school of
Basra was generally more philosophically inclined when
formulating the system of Arabic grammar while the school of
Kufah based its rules on evidence found in classical texts.
Although Basra applied more analogy does not mean that
Basran scholars did not also refer to the already existent
linguistic corpus in the classical texts. In order to re-evaluate
the above discussion, the researcher addresses some evidences
from the linguistic corpus and analogical approach in Arabic
—Rival, analogical, anomaly, corpus.
