This study has shown that, there is a difference about the meaning of Hypothetical clause between the Grammarians theory and Rationalist Scholars theory, and in the theory of Grammarians, the correlation in the (lao) significance, and the causality of its condition, be through external reality, and not through the logical correlation rules, as the theory of Rationalist Scholars, and this difference guides to the solution of many objections about the expression of Grammarians.
