The original sense of the root hˢ -k-y, “to report; to imitate”, is preserved in Sībawayhi’s use of hˢ ikāya for ‘direct speech’. For example, in the construction qāla Zaydun ʚAmran xayru n-nāsi (III:142), Zayd’s words are reported verbatim and therefore qāla does not govern ʚAmrun, which remains in the nominative as in the original utterance. Derived from this sense is the use of the term to refer to elements that are intentionally not integrated into the syntactical build of the construction.
