The present study aims at exploring the way in which English implicit demonstrative reference is rendered into Arabic through analyzing a number of sentences in the novel "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban," written by J. K. Rowling (2010), and its Arabic translated version by Ahmad Hassan Mohammed (2010). The scrutiny of the English implicit demonstrative reference shows that it can be translated into Arabic, whether implicitly or explicitly. This procedure is determined by the entailment of the demonstrative reference, whether it is clear and comprehensible, or unclear and incomprehensible. Also, the study has revealed that literal translation and formal equivalence present themselves as valid options in translating the English implicit demonstrative reference into Arabic. Recommendations of the study are stated at the end of the present research paper.
