They are encountered as over or under-translation, discursive or semantic inadequacy, etc. Elements are mingled and numerous cases overlap. Such classifications will always have either too few or too many terms, at least for as long as there is no clear awareness of why translation errors should be classified in the first place Loddgeaard and Dollerup, Pym 60 indicates that when a text undergoes many transformations in the TL, it is no longer a translation.
The interconnectivity of the clauses that make a discourse is vital for its interpretation, and eventually, its rendition. Discourse connectors play a vital role in determining sense. Purpose of the Study This study aims at investigating the effect of common errors related to syntactic structures encountered while translating from English into Arabic.
The researcher also tries to call the attention of translators and students of translation, language, and practitioners to those errors so that they are handled with care.
Method of the Study 1. Data Collection: The sets of data were collected from several sources: practice translation courses; TV news bulletins, documentaries, and dubbed or subtitled movies; and text and reference books that the researcher has come across.
There was a problem providing the content you requested
Collected examples were so numerous, but only some representative samples are used in this paper. Data Analysis: Errors were categorized according to their types. Errors related to redundancy, word order, passivization, etc. The researcher tries to explain the sources of these errors to be avoided. He focuses on cases where syntactic structure is optionally deviant. Redundancy Arabic and English, generally speaking, exhibit some differences that are related to the function of tense.
A misunderstanding of the function of a given tense or aspect may lead to a mistranslation of the text in which it occurs. So the translator needs to be aware of the similarities and differences between tenses in Arabic and English.
However, this error does not result in gain or loss in translation. This common error does not really affect the meaning, though the user sounds inversed in Arabic. Though the reader gets the message, the structure is not idiomatic. Problems with Coordinators and Subordinators: It is evident that there are common errors resulting from the misuse of certain Arabic coordinators.
So, there is no need for two such items in one position. This error indicates a problem with competence in Arabic grammar. Misplacement of Modifiers and Other Elements: It is a well-known fact that the position of a modifier with respect to the modified influences the meaning. This fact is sometimes overlooked in the process of translation resulting in wrong renditions.
The original text Translated text Suggestion I personally came to tell you. So, the given translation does not provide the intended meaning.
For the intended meaning, it should be in the position shown in the suggested translations. Sometimes translators mistakenly make it modify the wrong element. Errors Related to Passive Structure Under the principle of naturalness, Arabic does not prefer agentive passive, i. Along these lines, Mouakket 47 argues that in the case of a passive Arabic sentence: the agent is not found on the surface structure, and this is a characteristic of the Arabic passive voice.
In such a case, the agent deletion is to be considered an obligatory operation in the procedure of choosing the subject of the sentence. The following example illustrates this point: The original text Translated text Suggestion The letter was sent by the president. It seems that scholars are agreed that Arabic prefers an active structure rather than an agentive passive one like the ill- formed one above. Al-Najjar asserts, "the active voice structure is more preferable and more well-formed.
It simply means "at your side" because the meaning of the Hadith is roughly "You are guarding Islam at your position, so let it not be undermined attacked or criticized at your side.
Here, it is better to render English agentive passive into Arabic active for naturalness. The Arabic given translation suggests that the spongy structure is an agent that makes the tree, which is not the case. The relationship between the structure and the tree is a situation of existence and of agent and patient. Therefore, this sentence cannot be rendered as agentive passive because it would give the wrong message in the TLT. So, the suggested translation is more appropriate.
However, the passive voice is better. Moreover, the translation can be in active voice in Arabic if we are sure of the agent. The SLT asserts that depletion is going on. Though the ill-formed translation does not affect the meaning, it looks as if provided by a non-native speaker of Arabic and a kind of literal translation violating the naturalness principle.
This error may be seen one of those that function as a regularizing process in Arabic, especially when there is a lengthy imbedded material between the head and the second element when it becomes difficult to detect the pronoun and its antecedent.
However, it seems that this kind of error is becoming established in Arabic, especially when there is a string of words in between. In this case it becomes easier when they are juxtaposed, a manifestation of language change.
So it starts a subordinate dependent. Therefore, the translated text is a fragment as such because it consists of two subordinate clauses. Here the translator is following the structure of the SLT while he is supposed to restructure the meaning following the structure of the TLT.
Errors Related to Word Order English is basically an analytic language, i. Arabic is basically synthetic, i. Any other grammatically permissible word orders in both languages are marked. This means that there is no special focus on any part of the sentence. The Arabic translated text is marked because it is SVO which means that there is special focus on the subject.
Therefore, the suggested Arabic translation is more accurate because it maintains the natural word order. Also, the translator comes up with an unnecessarily complicated structure for the reader. So the suggestion is more accurate. Shift of Focus Expectancy Main ideas are expressed in main clauses; peripheral ideas, in peripheral structures, subordinate clauses or phrases.
Sometimes, the translator may lose track of such sensitive relationship between ideas and structures resulting in the wrong assignment between structures and ideas.
Nida 36 points out. The tension which is introduced in such shifts between the normal and the non-normal, between the usual and the unusual, between the expected and the unexpected, accounts for significantly greater impact involved in such shifts. Arab World English Journal www. The translator changed the structure of the main idea injury of the Israeli soldier to be in a peripheral clause, and the killing of the Palestinian children to be in a main clause.
This violates the principle of loyalty. Therefore, the given translation is ill-formed because of the shift of focus. We can assume that such an error may occur as a result of one or more of the following reasons: 1. Indifference of the translator about the task of translation; 2.
The translator's incompetence in one of the SL or the TL or both; 3. The translator's incompetence in translation as a skill; 4. The structure he is dealing with is too lengthy so that the translator loses track of which ideas are expressed in main clauses and which are expressed in peripheral ones.
The suggestion provides the appropriate structure. This error changes the meaning from high tide to low tide. The problem seems to be at the transfer stage. The translator keeps in mind in the SL structure while trying to convey the meaning in the TL, rather than abandoning the SL structure and considering the TL structure only. Errors Related to Agreement: There are many errors related to agreement.
In most of the cases, if not all, the problem could be related to language competence. These errors can be classified as follows: So the dual and the plural inflections are not appropriate in such a case. Actually, the second suggestion is better. But the suggested unmarked text is better. In one, the translator might be translating from the script where the gender of the speaker or the addressee is not clear because some English pronouns do not show gender.Principles of language learning and teaching.
