Abstract

This research investigates the information structure of Theme and Rheme in the Qur’an. Theme is defined as the given information and the Rheme is considered as the new information. Arabic clause is divided into two basic information structures (Theme + Rheme) in the (mubtada + khabar) and (fi’l + fā’il). The main data in this research was collected from the Quranic Arabic Corpus (QAC). The first problem in this research is to describe the grammatical aspect of triliteral root sīn hamza lām (TRSHL) in the clause of Qur’ānic Arabic Corpus. The second problem is to elaboratethe triliteral root sīn hamza lām in the construction of Theme and Rheme, this triliteral root occurres in the Qur’an 129 times, in six derived forms. This triliteral root was selected to become the model of the other and the next research about the triliteral root at the Qur’ānic Arabic Corpus. Therefore, the annotation of Corpus in Qur’ān had been developed by investigating the information structure based on the Arabic roots. The lack of annotation in the Qur’anic Corpus can be filled by the data mining about the (Theme + Rheme) construction based on the triliteral root at Qur’an.
