Title: La struttura originaria della radice araba nel pensiero di ’Ibn Ğinnī

Abstract: In this study ’Ibn Ğinnī's theory about the structure of the Arabic root is analysed. ’Ibn Ğinnī seems to distinguish between the structure C1aC2 regarded as the proto-structure of the Arabic root and the remaining root-structures supposed to be historical and generated by the proto-structure. Strong evidente for the first assumption lies in 'Ibn Ginni's morpho-phonological theories: he considers the simpler form of the Arabic root, namely C1aC2, the more archaic one. The second hypothesis could prove to be true in case of the traditionally so-called triconsonantal root, or, more precisely, C1aC2eC3, whose structure can be related to the proto-structure by means of three rules (vowel-transfer, hamza-insertion and metathesis). This reconstruction is suggested by ’Ibn Ğinnī, as well as classification of historical structures others than C1aC2eC3 that leads to derive them from this type of root, and, in consequence of this, from the proto-structure.
