السلام عليكم

Ok, so my first post was an absolute disaster - reading back on it now I think I can't even understand it myself - let alone anyone else. So - believe it or not - I'm taking the mathematical approach. I'm going to try my hand at 'reasoning'...

So lets start with the nominal sentence: The X is Y

If I try to fit the question into the X is Y, this will NOT work as the former is a statement, however, I may be able to use some of the aspects from that formula and I come up with: Where is the X?

So according to me, I see a link between both X's above, which means that I am now 'cancelling' each one out with the other. This means that both are the مبتدأ

Next, we go on to the 'Where?' and in order to work this out - don't laugh, I actually thought about this - I figured that I'd first have to look at the answer that it would give, in order to find out what the function of the word actually is.

In this case the asking of 'Where' will lead me to a **place**, this place will be the news or information of the sentence, i.e. خبرٌ

So for example: If I ask أين الولد؟, My answer could be الولد موجود في البيت

Leaving me with an interesting conclusion:

If the question 'Where is the boy' is converted into the X and Y formula, it would only work BACKWARDS!

Yes - at this stage I know you think I've lost the plot but seriously, I think:

Where = will give rise to the خبرٌ (The predicate)

the boy (THE X) = مبتدأ (The subject)

So I guess what I'm trying to say is that the sentence grammatically could be: حرف الإستفهام) خبرٌ ومبتدأ) (Predicate first!)

I really pray we get the answer soon - I'm running out of ideas...
