Kristof D'hulster deposited Licit Magic – GlobalLit Working Papers 9. Sugary Gratitude, Strolling Cypresses, Clouds Pouring Grass. Ḥalīmī on Paranomasia, Simile, and Metonymy in the group Digital Middle East & Islamic Studies on Humanities Commons 12 months ago
The translation of a short treatise on paranomasia, simile, and metonymy, by the foremost Persian-Turkish lexicographer of the 15th century, Lütfu’llāh el–Ḥalīmī. The text combines a rather dense and elliptic prose style with a remarkably lucid and clear-cut typology of seven types of tajnīs, seven types of tashbīh, and nine types of majāz, often illustrated with Turkic, Persian, Arabic or mixed-language verses.
