Faculty of Languages

 

The Faculty of Languages was established in 1986/1987, under the name of the Language Center. In 1988, the former General People's Committee issued a Decision No. 245 of 1988 to change the name of the Center to the Faculty of Languages. In 2002, the Faculties of Languages, Social and Applied Sciences, and Education were merged together under the name “Faculty of Arts".

 

However, with the start of the Fall Term in 2008/2009, the academic activities of the Faculty of Languages ​​were re-activated in all its levels pursuant to the decision of the former General People's Committee No. 535 of 2007 on the reorganization of universities and higher institutes. Since then, all language departments ended integration with the Faculty of Arts.

 

The Faculty of Languages ​​in its second era includes six departments:

 

Department of Arabic Language

Department of English Language

Department of French Language

Department of Spanish Language

Department of Italian Language

Department of African Languages

Department of Translation

The People or the Police: Who to Blame?

One news event may be represented differently by different news organizations. Research in news representation remains sparse in Arabic. This article investigates some of the linguistic and textual devices used in journalistic texts. It looks at the way these devices are used to influence public opinion. This gives rise to significance of conducting this research. This study uses these devices within the framework of Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA). For the purpose of this study, four news articles produced by Aljazeera and Al-Arabiya were examined under CDA in order to show how journalists structure their news stories to imply an ideological stance. The analysis showed that Aljazeera and Al-Arabiya represented the people and the police differently, each according to their ideological and political leanings. This resulted in the public having different opinions of the event.

Dialects on Screen: Translating Jordanian Dialect into English The Case of Captain Abu Raed Film

This article explores the translation of dialects on-screen within the Jordanian context. Such place of translation is arguably one of the most challenging areas of translation, yet interesting due to its variety. Arab peoples use their dialects to express their opinions on several platforms, including TV media. Audiovisual translation research is growing in investigating subtitling Arabic dialects and languages on screen. Scholars propose a dialect-to-dialect approach or a dialect-to-standard approach. However, in this paper the focus is more on the strategies which inevitably fall within those approaches. The study uses a Jordanian film known as Captain Abu Raed as a source of highlighting and demonstrating translation of dialects within an Arabic context. The initial findings show that some dialectal expressions are taken off or sacrificed by replacing them with neutralized standard language.

Changing the Structure of Paragraphs and Texts in Arabic: A Case from News Reporting

This study explores the textual alterations of Arabic news structure and how it has been influenced by news texts produced in English. The paper precisely examines sentence, paragraph and text structures in terms of form and content in relation to news translation. It analyses news articles collated from Aljazeera and Al-Arabiya news networks. The collated corpus is translations from English into Arabic by these two media outlets. The analysis showed considerable changes that the form of Arabic textual structures has incurred, especially in the general layout of texts. Although it confirm Hatim’s (1997) text-type categorisation with regard to argumentation in Arabic news texts that Arabic lacks argumentative elements it news content, it exhibited significant shift in internal cohesion, paragraph transitions, and syntactic patterns. These changes could emanate from many other influencing factors, but translation is definitely one.
