Transliteration of Foreign Proper Nouns in Arabic: Graphologial Proximity vs Transcription Equivalence

Auther : Jamal B. S. AL-Qinai

The paper tackles the dilemma of transliterating foreign proper nouns into Arabic as well as representing Arabic names in Languages of a Latinate Alphabet. Our main interest is in sounds which have no counterparts in European Languages. Further, the study presents a criticism of the proposals and decisions of Arabic Language academies and some Arab linguists along with the discrepancies and shortcomings of the transliteration systems of both the Encyclopedia of Islam (The British System) and the Library of Congress (The American System). Alternative symbols are proposed to replace those currently in usage.
