Broch, p. 104 in fine, § 366), al-Zamabšari informs us that there are only three patterns in Arabic which convey the nomina instrumenti, viz : Imif'alunl, J, /mif'alatun/, and /mif'iilun/. This accepted wisdom has been viewed as complete, even to modern times, by such grammarians as Wright 2 and Fleisch 3. If we investigate deeper into this topic, we discover that J. Barth 4 claims that an additional pattern, viz. Ifi'dll is used in Arabic (as well as in Proto-Semitic) as a pattern to convey nouns of instrument. AI-Zamabšari'B knowledge of this fact is conveyed to us only in his masterful commen- tary on the Qur'än, the Qur'in 7.40 has a the eye of a needle *, fsammi I-lJiyátJ. AI-Zamayšari 5 comments : «'Abd Allah read : 'through the eye of a needle, /mihyat/' (as opposed to the textual) (to which it is morphologically synonymous); (the same relation holds, analo- gously, between the two words for 'belt'« /hixam/ and /mihxam/. (Its meaning is the instrument) by which sewing is done, viz., a needle n. Here we have a striking instance in which al-Zamabšari rounds out and completes in his Ifa,f,faf the description of a topic in Arabic morphology he presented in his grammat- ical magnum opu8, the h?ufa8sal.
