The Second Exodus: The Impact Of Kuwait On The Palestinian People, Sarah Jarrar Aug 2020

The Second Exodus: The Impact Of Kuwait On The Palestinian People, Sarah Jarrar

The Macksey Journal

As a network of people spread across various nations, the experiential perspective of Palestinians in diaspora varies greatly. A particular place and time significant to the development of Palestinian diasporic functionalities was Kuwait from 1948 to the beginning of the Gulf war. As the discovery of commercial quantities of oil in Kuwait nearly coincided with the declaration of the Israeli state, the young Emirate required a labor force to match grandiose plans for development. As a result, Kuwait made itself a unique space for Palestinians and other migrants. But, due to the dominant role Palestinians in particular took in working ...


A Rendezvous With Revolution: How Contemporary Female Singers Have Transformed Egypt, Summer El-Shahawy Aug 2020

A Rendezvous With Revolution: How Contemporary Female Singers Have Transformed Egypt, Summer El-Shahawy

The Macksey Journal

In this research project on contemporary female singers in Egypt, I will reveal the creative processes behind alternative female musicians' sounds and explore how female musicians who inhabit the fringes of underground musical niches contribute to social changes and impact gender roles in the Egyptian music domain. Over time, Egypt has undergone multiple waves of radical social and political change, including the 2011 revolution and the ousting of President Mubarak. The political and social changes that occurred during this pivotal event have increased the importance of music as an avenue for protest and expression and have allowed more space for ...

رواية ابن جني والمعري وديوان المتنبي دراسة نقدية موازنة, Ahmad Dahman, Mohammad Al Shair

Al Jinan الجنان

إن المطالع شروح شعر المتنبي(ت354هـ)، ولا سيما الفسر لابن جني(ت395هـ) واللامع العزيزي لأبي العلاء المعري(ت449هـ)، يلفت انتباهه اختلافها في رواية أبيات كثيرة من هذا الشعر، وردّ كثير من الشرّاح بعض روايات ابن جني ونقدها، على الرغم من أنه روى عن الشاعر، وقرأ عليه. ولمّا كان الأمر على هذه الحال، ولأن الرواية من أهم جوانب شرح الشعر وأخطرها، وعليها يتوقف توجيه المعنى وتحديده ونقده، يسعى هذا البحث إلى دراسة رواية شعر المتنبي عند ابن جني والمعري في شروحهما على ديوانه، فيحاولرصد مصادر رواية الشارحين، والإشارة إلى مواطن الاتفاق والاختلاف بين روايتيهما، وبيان علة ذلك، كما يسعى ...

التلميح بين براعة التوظيف وثقافة المبدع والمتلقي, Rami Rajab Aug 2020

التلميح بين براعة التوظيف وثقافة المبدع والمتلقي, Rami Rajab

Al Jinan الجنان

التلميح فن من فنون البديع، وباب راق في سلم البلاغة، يصعب تناوله إلا لمن أوتي حظاً وافراً من المعرفة والثقافة، والاطلاع على منظوم الكلام ومنثوره، يُضاف إلى ذلك ذائقة لغوية وأدبية، تسعف صاحبها في تملّك ناصية الأدب والبيان، فيجيء المعنى المطروق على أحسن مثال وصورة. عالج العديد من البلاغيين القدامى التلميح في باب السرقات الشعرية، وما يتعلق بها، وقرنوه في ذلك بالاقتباس والتضمين والعقد والحل، حتى بدا وكأنه حتم ولزام عند هؤلاء أن يعالج التلميح في مذل هذا الموضع

Grammatical Terminology: Vocalization And Signification, Mohammad Allabady Jul 2020

Grammatical Terminology: Vocalization And Signification, Mohammad Allabady

Association of Arab Universities Journal for Arts مجلة اتحاد الجامعات العربية للآداب

The grammatical terminology in the field of grammatical studies is the most

significant component of this study. One of its most important features is that

grammarians have expatiated in prescribing the rules of grammatical

terminology. Schools, and approaches to grammar varied in their ways of

tackling it, and which forms an important feature for the development of

grammatical studies. This feature has assumed a prominence in the field of

linguistics studies in general.

This paper sheds light on grammatical terminology from two perspectives:

its abundance on the one hand and its intermingling and variety in its meanings

on the other ...

the modern. Each has his own theory. Included in this article are kinds of

assimilation, whether direct or indirect, progressive or regressive. The symptom

what ways he used to convey these illustrations, and what position he took

regarding its authors, need to be reconsidered. The study tries also to prove that

the copy of his Kitab we currently use is neither the original copy nor the nextin- ...

الشعر المقطعي لابن عربي المرسى, عبدالله الزيات

Association of Arab Universities Journal for Arts مجلة اتحاد الجامعات العربية للآداب

الشعر المقطعي هو شعر الموشحات والأزجال الذي ظهر وتطور بالأندلس، وقد عرض الباحثون

القدامى والمحدثون، وخاصة المستشرقين والمستعربين، لأمور عديدة في هذين الفننين، وكان من بين

ذلك موضوع أيهما أسبق؟ ومن كان المخترع الأول لهذا الفن أو ذاك؟ وكان من بين الموضوعات التي

بحثت في هذين الأغراض التي تناولاها، ومن بينها غرض الزهد والتصوف، وقد عرف رأي شاع بين بحاث

الأدب الأندلسي، مفاده أن أهم شاعرين في التصوف بالأندلس وهما ابن عربي وأبو الحسن الششتري قد

طوعا فني الموشحات والأزجال لموضوع التصوف؛ فوضعا جزءاً كبيراً من شعرهما الصوفي في هذين

الإطارين الشعريين، وشاع أن ابن عربي هو أول من استعمل ...

The Hope Of Salman Masalha: Re-Territorializing Hebrew, Yael Dekel, Eran Tzelgov Apr 2020

The Hope Of Salman Masalha: Re-Territorializing Hebrew, Yael Dekel, Eran Tzelgov

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

Israeli poetry can be depicted as a triangle composed of three elements: territory (the State of Israel); language (Hebrew); and identity (Jewish). In his Hebrew collection of poetry Eḥad Mikan (in place, 2004), Salman Masalha—a bilingual author publishing in both Arabic and Hebrew—challenges this interrelation of territory, language and identity. The debate between the literary scholars Hannan Hever and Reuven Snir explore the central expressions of this challenge. For it points, on the one hand, to the subversive potential of such work towards the Israeli canon while, on the other hand, to its connection to Arabic literature. Writing ...


Cross Language Information Transfer Between Modern Standard Arabic And Its Dialects – A Framework For Automatic Speech Recognition System Language Model, Tiba Zaki Abdulhameed Apr 2020

Cross Language Information Transfer Between Modern Standard Arabic And Its Dialects – A Framework For Automatic Speech Recognition System Language Model, Tiba Zaki Abdulhameed

Dissertations

Significant advances have been made with Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) applications. Yet, dialectal conversation ASR is still trailing behind due to limited language resources. As is the case in most cultures, the formal Modern Standard Arabic language is not used in daily life. Instead, varieties of regional dialects are spoken, which creates a dire need to address dialect ASR systems. Processing MSA language naturally poses considerable challenges that are passed on to the processing of its derived dialects. In dialects, many words have gradually morphed from MSA pronunciations and at many times have different usages. Also ...

The Case For Early Arabia And Arabic Language: A Reply To The New Arabia Theory By Ahmad Al-Jallad, Saad D. Abulhab

Publications and Research

A reply to an article published on May 23rd, 2018, in The New Yorker magazine by Elias Muhanna, titled A New History of Arabia, Written in Stone, introducing a new theory by Ahmad al-Jallad, a Harvard trained scholar of ancient Near East languages and scripts, asserting that the Arabic language (and presumably the Arabs) was originated in the south Levant desert and migrated southward. This theory would reverse the established conclusions set forth by the esteemed work of numerous Islamic Arab linguists and historians, over more than a thousand years, who believed the Arabs and the Arabic language originated in ...

Transitional Portraits: Syrian Immigrants Of The North American Mahjar In 'Abd Al-Masih Haddad's Prose, Benjamin Smith Jan 2020

Transitional Portraits: Syrian Immigrants Of The North American Mahjar In 'Abd Al-Masih Haddad's Prose, Benjamin Smith

Arabic Faculty Works

This article argues that the 1921 collection of diasporic short stories Hikayat al-mahjar, written by ‘Abd al-Masih Haddad, makes a unique and notable contribution to mahjar literature by mobilizing formal literary techniques and innovative thematic content to capture a Syrian immigrant community engaged in a transitional moment in America. This paper situates Haddad (best known as the founder of the biweekly Arabic newspaper al-Saʼih, and a founding member of the literary society al-Rābiṭa al-qalamiyya) among his literary peers and provides an analysis of Hikayat al-mahjar that demonstrates the work’s points of convergence and divergence from the literary norms of ...

The Power Of Language: An Analysis Of Language Use And Attitudes In Moroccan Universities, Mikaela K. Thomas Jan 2020

The Power Of Language: An Analysis Of Language Use And Attitudes In Moroccan Universities, Mikaela K. Thomas

Honors Theses

This study examines the connections between language use and attitudes in Moroccan universities. Morocco is a North African country that is historically multilingual, with communities speaking Moroccan Arabic (Darija), indigenous Amazigh, French, and English, in addition to the Standard Arabic used in government and by the Muslim community. The French Protectorate from 1912 to 1956 ushered in colonial language policies and imposed the French education system that enforced linguistic hierarchies. While the subsequent Arabization period attempted to reestablish the importance of Standard Arabic in Morocco, the policies failed to promote true multilingualism by ignoring the Amazigh and Darija languages. Today ...


Lost In Translation, Presumption, And Interpretation: Adam, Noah, And The Ancient Mesopotamian Mythology Of The Creation And The Flood, Saad D. Abulhab Jan 2020

Lost In Translation, Presumption, And Interpretation: Adam, Noah, And The Ancient Mesopotamian Mythology Of The Creation And The Flood, Saad D. Abulhab

Publications and Research

The common, biblical believes in an initial, single human creation, and a subsequent survival of a punishing, catastrophic flood were among the key forming pillars of the Near East monotheist religions. The other key pillar was, arguably, the belief in the existence of a one, supreme god and creator. However, neither the two stories of human creation and catastrophic flood, nor the belief in one supreme god, were originally introduced by these monotheist religions. Key inscriptions from ancient Mesopotamia have clearly indicated that various versions of these beliefs were commonplace for thousands of years before. Despite the differences in details ...

Incomplete Conjunction Of Words In The Arabic Grammar, Malika Nasirova Dec 2019

Incomplete Conjunction Of Words In The Arabic Grammar, Malika Nasirova

The Light of Islam

Annotation: One of the main issues in Arabic Linguistic is «grammatical status - إِعرَاب » (changing of the endings of words). «Changing of the endings of words» doesn’t mean changing the actual ending of the word itself (e.g.. the last letter), because the actual ending itself won’t change. What we’re changing here is the condition of the ending of words, which means that words transition from one state to another, regardless of whether that happens explicitly or implicitly. The great linguists of the Middle Ages Sibawaykhi, Makhmud az-Zamakhshariy, Abul Fatkh Mutarriziy, modern linguists Abbas Khasan, Mustapha ...
