Abstract: 

Vujuh (literary means “aspects”) is a branch of Qur’anic sciences that has been resorted to a lot by Qur’an researchers in the course of the history of Qur’an interpretation (Tafsir). Vujuh refers to the

polysemous words in Qur’an. Some Qur’anic words have even more than twenty meanings. Considering the abundance of polysemous words in the Holy Qur’an, it is indeed a very hard task to identify the exact signified for every signifier in it. This paper studies the aspects for the meanings of the word “Aayah” (verse) from a semiotic approach. The word “Aayah” has two textual (the verses of the Qur’an) and contextual (the natural world, soul of man, and the lives of the predecessors) senses in Qur’an. The results of the study indicate that it is necessary to carefully consider both the immediate and distant cotexts. In other words, the paradigmatic and syntagmatic relations of a text are not limited to the immediate cotexts. In the Holy Qur’an a verse in one part can be related paradigmatically and syntagmatically to another verse in a different part.
