This corpus-based research is about Sound Devices of the Holy Quran and their translations into English Poetic and Non-poetic translations. Nikayin’s translation (2000), the first and only English Poetic translation of the Holy Quran, conveys the aesthetic features of Arabic text of the Holy Quran into English speaking world which are not considered deeply in other types of translation. To compare the poetic translation of the Holy Quran to non-poetic ones, we selected two other genres of translation; a stylistic translation by Arberry, and an explanatory one by Yusuf Ali. The framework of the study is Vahid’s model of Translation Analysis, a tool for Poetry Translation Quality Assessment. we first describe the features of Poetic translation. Then, we compare what other translators have done to translate those features to poetic text, and to explore their strategies of translation. The results in chapters four and five indicate that Nikayin followed Sound Devices of the original text more than other translators under the study.
The study blends the Qatari culture and American programs through the construction of a culturally sensitive model of a doctoral educational leadership program to be utilized in the State of Qatar. The methods of research in this qualitative study consisted of content analysis, survey, and follow-up interviews. Four American doctoral educational leadership programs were examined and analyzed to identify the main aspects of their programs that could be used to inform the construction of the Qatar program. Thirty-nine educators who are working in the educational field in the State of Qatar responded to the survey to provide information about the educational leadership needs in the State of Qatar. The study provides information on the educational history of the State of Qatar, the current educational commitments of the country, Qatari Culture and Education, Educational Leadership in the State of Qatar, A Debate about Effective Educational Leadership Doctoral Programs, NCATE Accreditation, principles of Curriculum Design for an Educational Leadership Program, and a proposal for a Qatari doctoral program in educational leadership and the justification for its components.
Research indicates that religion has played a vital role in the founding of the American nation as well as the American education system. However, over the years, religion has been taken from the educational realm and is no longer considered an important variable in impacting educational outcomes. This study examined the National Study of Youth & Religion dataset to further explore what was the most important component of religiosity (religious cognitive beliefs, emotional attachment, or behavioral commitment) in impacting academic and behavioral success. This study is important for education and has many implications for schools because prayer, scripture reading, and moral absolutes have been taken out of education. Children are being kept from knowing, developing a relationship with, and following God, which this study supports has the potential to impact self-regulation and, ultimately, educational outcomes.
This study investigates the rhetorical organisation of Chinese research article introductions in the field of educational psychology using Swales’s (1990 & 2004) framework of move analysis. This study found similarities and differences between the selected Chinese research article introductions and Swales's CARS (Create a Research Space) model. Chinese research article introductions fit the CARS model in terms of the global organisation. However, both Chinese research article introductions and Swales's CARS model have subtle rhetorical differences. This study attributes the rhetorical similarities to the influence of English as an international language on publications in China. It ascribes the rhetorical differences partially to membership of a specific discourse community but mainly to potential cultural influences. The findings of this study have pedagogical implications.
This book aims to casting new light on the problems of translating polysemy as one of areas of difficulty in rendering the Holy Quran. Some selected polysemous words in the Holy Quran have been analyzed in term of how far the translators of the Holy Quran succeed to render the intended meaning according to the context of the original text. Indeed, polysemy offers one of the most effective parameters according to which both the literary competence of the translator and religious and cultural awareness of the reader of the translation of the Holy Quran are revealed and gauged. Furthermore, polysemy proves the untranslatability of the Holy Quran, since the translators of the potential meanings of the Holy Quran depend on interpretations(tafaseer),we can term this as an interpretive translation. The book concludes that, translating polysemous meanings in the Quranic texts is not quite easy. This is because the polysemy involves very subtle differences in meaning that are difficult to grasp.
The book analyzes the dialogic verses of the Glorious Quran via Leech’s Interpersonal Rhetoric Model in order to demonstrate the implied meaning of the contributions by relating context to the abstract meaning and arriving at an inferential pragmatic meaning. The introduction handles some pragmatic concepts which are related to the topic of the research. The first chapter tackles verses via the Cooperative Principle. Chapter two studies the Politeness Principle. Chapter three deals with the Irony Principle. Results show that the Cooperative Principle proves itself a good mechanism for interpreting the implied meaning. The Politeness Principle is not as efficient as the Cooperative Principle because it cannot account for some contributions which are polite in principle. Chapter three shows the interaction between the linguistic and rhetorical features of the interlocutors’ contributions. Nevertheless, study demonstrates that the Irony Principle cannot, by its own, give possible interpretations for some of the ironic verses of the Glorious Quran. The conclusion of the study proves that implicature plays a major role in providing better understanding of the Quranic verses.

Study habit problem is a crucial issue which continues to generate a lot of concern among educationists, guidance counsellors, student themselves, psychologist and parents alike.. Because of its devastating effect, it therefore becomes necessary to revisit this problem (poor study habit) with a view to overcome it or reducing it to the barest minimum as it is now becoming the rule rather than the exception.
