This monograph attempts to identify the linguistic
characteristics of the Qur’anic narratives and to indicate
what distinguishes them from other Qur’anic thematic
passages. Initially, it is noted that there are four models
of Qur’anic narratives. In spite of the distinction between
the models, much of the narrative has the structure
suggested by Labov (1974) – namely, they include six
elements: abstract, orientation, complicating action,
evaluation, resolution and coda. This work shows that each
component is associated with specific linguistic features.
