    Grammatical concordance of the Qur'an. Many efforts are being made on vocabulary and root wise concordance of the Qur'an , but this idea focuses on grammatical and
    weight wise concordance of the Qur'an using similar weights of different roots. Like in vocabulary concordance different weights of the same root have some link to the root meaning, similarly in grammar concordance same weights usually have some similar effects on the meaning of the root.

    Column named Fa Ayn Laam is meant to put 3 letter roots of words e.g. for Raheem root is ra ha miim, column weight is to put weight of root e.g for Raheem weight is fa'eel, and G2 is meant to put noun forms for ease of grouping related words, like verbal forms have terms like I, II, III etc. Similarly these can have terms like N01.1, N01.2..., N02.1..., N03.1... etc. For columns, weight and root, additional columns containing text in Arabic in addition to transliteration can be added making total new columns as 5. For roots containing 2 letters suad laam is used and for 4 letters ba ra zay kha is used. Source: Lemmas sorted by : Group & Frequency from http://corpus.quran.com/lemmas.jsp as on 1-December-2010 . This document is being edited by Asim Iqbal 2nd http://asimiqbal2nd.110mb.com . ' stands for 1 ayn and '' stand for doubled ayn. The suggestion is to cover all the lemmas and weights. The "ta" at the end also increases intensity in some forms while in others it is just an indicator of feminine. I have tried to add t in G2 column and tried to mention t.f with real feminine only, keeping remaining ta cases open. Note : this work requires verification. Note: I have only worked on 3 new columns introduced by me i.e G2, weight and root, (root based on root data available in the lemmas data, but verification of roots containing weak letter to be done again at a later time). Remaining columns taken from lemmas directly and I have not yet edited or improved the remaining columns. To check any entry in detail, copy text of column lemmas, go to http://corpus.quran.com/morphologicalsearch.jsp and paste text in lemma and press search. Any suggestion, improvement or correction can be sent to my email address given on http://asimiqbal2nd.110mb.com . Invitation : http://corpus.quran.com is strongly invited to verify this data and add it to http://corpus.quran.com/lemmas.jsp , along with 2 new options, 1st to arrange them gramatically using G2 column to sort, 2nd to arrange them root wise using Fa Ayn Laam column to sort. For further improving, send your suggestions to me. ap is active participle, pp is passive participle,im is imperative and md is masdar (verbal noun) . vb.I.ap means active participle of verbal form I type. Similarly for others, as terms already exist for verbal forms and they should be kept. pl means plural and dl means dual and cl means collective noun, and in G2 dual is mentioned as p.dl. For roots with ayn and laam as same letter in simple cases, I have used laam's letter twice. If any one wants to do any other work on Grammatical and weight wise concordance on the Qur'an , feel free to discuss with me your project. For latest version keep visiting http://asimiqbal2nd.110mb.com . In pl of N foms e.g. N03.1zpl is written instead of N03.1pl so that it is sorted after N03.1t and N03.1y. Moreover in certain cases, only plural form is used in the Qur'an and singular is not used, so singular is checked using some grammar books, so due to this, sorting these pl at the end with zpl is better option. t.s is written where ta is only in singular and not in plural and t.p is written when ta is only in plural. z.G1 is written on basic grammar like prepositions, particles, conjunctions, pronouns etc. as sufficient material is available on these for these arranging via weights is not so important, check part of speech column, vocabulary concordance, grammar notes etc. for these. If you have any idea on how to sort these even better, feel free to give me suggestion. Usually a language comes first and then is analysed to derive grammar rules, so grammatical and weight wise concordance of the Qur'an is an important idea, by which existing grammar rules can be verified or improved, exceptions can be studied & there are many other benefits. Qur'an is a Miracle in Arabic so from its Miraculous language, you can get highest quality grammar. Context also has effects on the scope of the meaning e.g. The being whose quality is described, its context & placement in the Qur'an etc. This work is just a beginning, and scholars could take this idea and work to the next level by the help of ALLAH.
    e.g. from the weight Fu'laan assigned name N03.2 words :
    including the قُرْءَان (Qur'aan) , SubHaanسُبْحَٰن , Sultaanسُلْطَٰن , Tughyaanطُغْيَٰن , Burhaanبُرْهَٰن , 'Udwaanعُدْوَٰن , بُنْيَٰنBunyaan , Furqaanفُرْقَان , Buhtaanبُهْتَٰن , Husbaanحُسْبَان , khusraanخُسْرَان , Qurbaanقُرْبَان , Thu'baan ثُعْبَان , Tufaanطُّوفَان , Rukbaanرُكْبَان , Ghufraanغُفْرَان , Kufraan كُفْرَان

    Thus this is just 1 weight, and this method helps study the Qur'an's grammar using the Qur'an itself.
