Implicit Referential Meaning with Reference to English Arabic Translation

Basem Al-Zughoul


The purpose of this study is to investigate how English implicit referential meaning is translated into Arabic by analyzing sentences containing implicit referential meanings found in the novel “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban”. The analysis shows that the translation of English implicit referential meaning into Arabic can be done implicitly or explicitly by paying attention to the references. It also shows that it is essential to come up with adjustments in translating sentences with implicit referential meanings if the meaning causes ambiguity or vagueness in the target language.
