The aim of this study is to reveal the metaphorical and standard exclamation method in the Holy Quran, and the role of the exclamation method in highlighting intended meanings and their reflections on the respondent. The study has tackled a crucial topic and that is the range of utilizing the exclamation method in the Holy Quran in its standard pattern as presented in grammar books and the metaphorical pattern which has not been emphasized neither by grammatical studies nor books. The study has proved that the major usage of the exclamation in the Holy Quran was in the metaphorical method in all its forms particularly in ratification which includes metaphorical meanings including exclamation in which exclamation has been fully used in its different pronunciation patterns including (ajab, ajeeb and ojab) عجاب, عجيب , عجب,in addition to many other expressions. On the other hand, other exclamation expressions including (ma afealh and afeal bih) !به أفعل و! افعله ما have been rarely used the thing which emphasizes the importance of the metaphorical methods. This research is broken into two chapters; an introduction, preface and a conclusion. Chapter one emphasized the concept of the "exclamation" in Arabic language, in addition to standardized and metaphorical exclamations methods in different grammar books. Chapter two researched the exclamation method in its two forms in the Holy Quran, the effect of its usage in the clarification of the meanings and their effect on the respondent with the help of language and interpretation references. The study came up with a conclusion which includes the findings and recommendations of the research which are based on the descriptive approach for its suitability of this kind of research.
