A Comparative Study of Reference and Conjunction As Cohesive Devices in Two English Texts , Their Translated Versions , and Two Original Arabic Texts
Volume 4, Issue 12, Pages 297-315
This paper is a comparative analysis of two English texts ,their Arabic translated versions and two original Arabic texts . The focus is on reference and conjunction as cohesive devices and the shifts that may occur when translating literary texts due to differences in the grammatical systems of the source ( English ) and the target (Arabic ) language . It shows the translation strategies that translators use in transferring referential cohesion and conjunctions from an English literary text to its Arabic translated version . Also, it identifies the frequency of occurrence of both reference pronouns and conjunctions in all those six texts . To achieve these aims , two English texts have been translated by a professional translator , Safaa Kalusee, who is a well – known translator in Iraq .The first corpus is " A Letter of Condolescence " by Charles Dickens and the second is Miltons poem " Lycidas " . The four texts have been compared to show those shifts in translation .Also , two original Arabic texts have been analysed in terms of reference and conjunction . The first text is A Letter of Condolescence and the second is a poem written by AL- Mutanaby. In addition , a statical study is made to show the difference in the frequency of reference pronouns and conjunctions in all six texts . The first hypothesis is that the linking devices are more implicit in the target text (Arabic ) than in the source one (English ) . This is because of the agglutinating and inflecting nature of the target text as compared to the source one .The second hypothesis is that the two cohesive devices in the target texts are less common than those in the source texts and their frequency in the original Arabic texts is unequal . The results have shown that reference and conjunction are utterly affected in the Arabic target text and their frequency in the original texts depend on the type of the text it self i.e whether it is a poem , a letter , anovel , ........ etc.
Sociolinguistic Features in Selected literary texts of Charles Dickens and Jane Austin's Novels: Hard Times and Pride and prejudice
Volume 4, Issue 12, Pages 316-327
The present study "Sociolinguistic features in selected literary texts of Charles Dickens and Jane Austin Novels" is carried out by the researcher with the purpose of investigating and analyzing the social linguistic influences surrounding two novels namely: Hard times by Charles Dickens and Pride and prejudice by Jane Austin
This main focus of this topic is to approach the two famous novels of Charles Dickens and Jane Austin from the point of view of sociolinguistics. The point of view is that linguistics can determine the sociological background of the speaker through various speech habits and patterns. The approach is meant to ascertain the social background of writers' characters and the correlation to the writers' method of language use.
The present study attempts to find variations within a single speech community, first by surveying the findings of some well- known sociolinguists like William Labov, Noam Chomsky, and John Gumberz who have studied the traditions of writing argumentative texts concerning variations within a single speech community and second by subjecting selected sociolinguistic texts taken from two novels to a thorough discourse analysis

The question of women is the dominating motive in Hawthorne’s works, which offer rich images of women; their changing lives, frustrations and dreams. Hawthorne never viewed women as unimportant or as threatening Eves, but rather, as men’s vital, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual partners, companions not threats. In his short stories and romances, Hawthorne creates a wide range of female characters. Some are independent-minded, self-confident; others embody the gender expectations of women in Hawthorne’s day, weak and dependent on men.1
He presents a number of female characters who are victims of men, destroyed by male power. Through these various characters and their experiences, Hawthorne explores the gender relations in his day. He also raises questions about the role of domesticity in shaping female characters and the role of emotion as well as reason in human experience.2
This study focuses on one of Hawthorne’s female character who has been controlled by her selfish husband, Georgiana, the heroine of ‘’the Birthmark’’, and how this selfishness leads to her death. Consequently, woman cannot be defined by her relation to a man because she is an independent human being.

This study is concerned with revealing some aspects of Iraqi EFL learners' use of the speech act of permission. The study aims at (1) investigating the ability of Iraqi EFL learners to distinguish between the speech act of permission and other related speech acts, particularly speech acts of (requesting, offering and suggestion) when these are expressed by similar linguistic devices in a number of situations, (2) investigating the most common strategies adopted by Iraqi EFL learners for issuing the speech act of permission in certain situation.
These two objectives can be carried out through the following hypotheses:
1. Iraqi EFL learners recognize explicit permissive utterances better than implicit one.
2. Iraqi EFL learners misinterpret permission with relevant speech acts such as: requesting, offering and suggestion at both levels of recognition and production.
To achieve the objectives of the study and verify the hypotheses, the researcher conducted a test in which 45 Iraqi EFL college students at the fourth year stage, Department of English, College of Education for Human Sciences, University of Karbala 20013/2014. The analysis of the data confirms the hypotheses of the study and yields the following:
1. The learners' success in identifying the intended speech act depends to large extent on the degree of the explicitness of the performative expression used.
2. Iraqi EFL learners misinterpret the speech act of permission and have a difficulty to recognize it from other speech acts as requesting, offering and suggestion at the recognition level.
3. The learners tend to use explicit utterances that grant permission better than implicit ones
The contextual factors have no significant influence on the learners' choice of strategies at the production level.
