Abstract

 

The current article endeavors to demonstrate that ‘logic’ plays a pivotal role in demarcating the boundary between language and literature. Literature depends on an illogical manner of language. Everyday language has its own logical structure. But in the realm of literature, one can observe the illogical manner of language. As a result, everyday language transforms into literature when it loses its logical features. In this regard, it necessitates a new theory to focus on the logic both as a cognitive and determining system which works between contradictory spheres: everyday language and literature. In this theory, logic can provide a cognitive system which has the appropriate features for measuring linguistic and literary parameters. This system in addition not only identifies the logical structures of language but also is able to reconstruct literary sentences. Every interpretation of literary texts is in fact a kind of a logical-making process. Any explanation of metaphors and similes renders literary texts logical and meaningful. This new idea was mentioned by Sibawayh, a well-known Muslim grammarian and linguist in the eighth century; however, his idea has been ignored in linguistic studies. This paper introduces logical system as an essential contribution and step in [studies in] linguistics and literature.

Keywords: Language, Logic, Literature, System, Structure.
