The research aims to know the effect of inflectional diacritics in directing the meaning and to respond to the problems that deny the role of inflectional diacritics or reduce their importance, as well as to explain the function of the movement at the level of sound and inflection, starting with the letter and ending with the structure, then explaining its effect from the syntactic aspect. It has become clear that it has an undeniable effect in explaining the meaning. Or changing the meaning of words and directing them according to the speaker’s intention or the reader’s interpretation. Therefore, rulings changed, and meanings multiplied due to the syntactic diacritics. This multiplicity and direction of meanings was not specific to any chapter of grammar, but rather it was found in most of these chapters and in all grammatical cases and in the case of composition.
