عنوان مقاله [English]
Deviation is a prominent feature of language that occurs at different levels. The importance of Deviation lies in the fact that the recipient of the text is apparently confronted with a kind of fragmentation in the speech, while its application, in fact, expresses the behavior of the language in order to explain the obligatory implications and the points of distinction. In this sense, the present study seeks to examine the issue of interpretation of past tense for future one in a number of Qur'anic stories by relying on the descriptive-analytical method in the light of meta-normality theory and to explain the semantic reason for this stylistic phenomenon. The Quranic data showed that the phenomenon of interpretation of the past with the future word as one of the forms of deviation from the standard language is influenced by both textual and contextual factors. Also, this process has been effective in the stories of the Qur'an in order to explain concepts such as the appropriateness of work and punishment, proving the concept of free will and negation of determinism, influence of infidelity and false notions, the generality of promoting degrees, and so on.
