Abstract: 

Abolfazl Beihaqi, a great writer of the Qaznavi period, using the sentence "no one remembered a case like that" and similar sentences in his history book, makes further explanation unnecessary for himself and for his audience. Investigating the application of such sentences with a high frequency (approximately 50) illustrates that he has used them in four cases: in joys and parties (40%), in ceremonies of giving gifts or ranks (27%), in the case of skills (20%), and in natural disasters (13%). We can imagine the following objective for Beahaqi's use of these sentences: using them in their real meanings (32%), unprecedency of the case for Beihaqi (17%), using them as a habit (12%), and using them exaggeratively (39%).
The last use is the most frequent one which shows Beihaqi's great love of Sultan Mas'oud, which is not lessened by the interval between the events and the date of writing the book (about 30 years). On the other hand, using these sentences in their real meaning is representative of the luxuries of the Qaznavi's court, unprecedented vinosity and parties, as well as the ingeniousness of the men of the court, especially his ancestors.
