The Problem of Translating English Linguistic Terminology into Arabic
Abdellah, Antar Solhy
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Postgraduate Conference on Linguistics (CAMLING) (1st, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK, Mar 2003)
Arabic Linguistics has been a full-fledged descriptive science for a long time. However modern Linguistics, as a distinct empirical science, entailed that Arab linguists review their methods of dealing with the linguistic phenomenon. One of the major challenges for this new approach was to create equivalent genuine Arabic terms in modern linguistic terminology. Transliteration is not always recommended as a straightforward strategy, and Arab linguists seek to use linguistic terms that represent the long history of Linguistic research in the Arab culture. The present paper deals with the strategies used for translating major linguistic terms into Arabic and investigates problems involved in this process. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
