The Role of the Complex Somatic in Farrukhi Sistoni`s Poetry


Abdulloeva Gulnoza


The article under consideration dwells on the place of somatic complex words in Farrukhi Sistoni`s creation (referring to the XI-th century). The author of the article lays an emphasis upon the idea that although several monographic works have been devoted to Farrukhi`s life and creation, in particular, the study done by Iranian scholar Gulomkhusayn Yusufi and the Tajik man-of-letters Mirzo Mulloahmedov based on linguistic peculiarities of his poetry did not become the object of special study, with the exception of fragmented and fragmentary remarks. Proceeding from the abundant factual material, the author comes to the conclusion that with rare exceptions, the original Tajik words are considered to be as components of complex somatic ones, upon the whole. Particular emphasis is laid upon the idea that the Sistan poet`s mastership in reference to creation of elegant poetic images gives preference to complex somatic words. Designing on the premise of the information of mediaeval interpretation dictionaries, including “Burkhoni Kote`” by Muhammad Husayn Tabrezi, and modern ones, such as: “Persian Dictionary” by Muin and “Lughat-Name” by Dehkhudo, Tajik roots of the word “dim” in the meaning “face” are proved, it is a front part, “face” and the error of the compilers of the “Dictionary of the Tajik Language” have been registered.
