This research is titled "The Interrogative in the Poetry of Elegy according to Al-Buhturi: A Syntactic-Semantic Study" because the idea behind it is to study the synthetic aspect of lamentation, and explain its connotations according to Al-Buhturi poet who is well-known for praising and lamenting by mourning the praised one and listing his virtues and influences. The researcher uses a method of study that starts with a statistical study and then analyzes these statistics. In order to demonstrate the power and precision of the meaning of the purpose of lamentation in Al-Buhturi’s poetry. The researcher then addresses each of the interrogative tools in terms of the linguistic structure of the letter itself, the sentence that is contained in it, and an explanation of the connotations of each of them. The poet concentrates on the use of tools of interrogation and grammatical structure to link the structural-semantic analysis such as (Alhamza, (Hel) whether, (Ayen) where, (Ay) which, (Kem) how (Keif), what (Ma), when*Meta), and who (Maen)), fifty-nine times, and he divides them according to their meaning and position. So, the most common use is Alhamza (Hel), because the poet wants his poem to be interrogative, ending with the interrogative device (when) which appears in his poetry only once. In order to convey the idea of picturing something happening in the mind, the poet opts to employ an interrogative form in his poems.
