“Interpretive rules” are macro-level guidelines that are formed to achieve a justified understanding of the text. One of the most important instructions in interpretation operations is how to discover the two layers of “deep structure and surface structure”, and the process applied in the relations of “co-occurrence and substitution” in the chain of words. The explanation of this matter is given in structural linguistics and transformational grammar. Now, the questions are raised as, “Can this method of analysis be applied to the verses of the Qur’an? Does it have intra-religious evidence? Can it be shown as an interpretive rule? And how can it be used?”
In this article, it is attempted to explain that the method of linguistic analysis is not specific to a particular text and is applicable in the text of the Qur’an as well as; and also certain evidences of the endeavors of the Imams are presented in using this method in the form of a Qur’anic rule entitled “The Rule of qāl va lam yaqul” has been formulated and the way to use it step by step has been adapted in a sample of verses.
