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.

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


Department of Arabic Language

The Technique of of Calque in the Translation of Political Discourse

The study deals with the problem of the excessive presence of literally translated expressions (Calques) in Arabic political Media. Although Calque is considered to be a recognized technique in translation, yet it is not a good solution in many cases. After a detailed account of various techniques and procedures presented by pioneering translation theoreticians, with special focus on those who have dealt with the technique of Calaque, the study puts us against the disappointing reality lying behind the political discourse as being a tool of ‘truth manipulation’, and how far this discourse employs certain means to achieve its goals. Based on two separate questionnaires, a number of results and conclusions have been reached. The study concludes that the usage of the Calque techniqueis considered as an inappropriate procedure in some cases, when it will result in some structural and ideologically problematic expressions coming into surface. The study emphasizes, as well, the negative effects of the excessive presence of calques on the target language’s listener /reader, besides the positive ones. On the other hand, it recommends that the translator should resort to other techniques, by which the problematic cases could be avoided. arabic 10 English 58
