AbdelRahim A. Elmadany,Sherif M. Abdou,Mervat Gheith
Computer Science , 2015,
Abstract: We present an annotation schema as part of an effort to create a manually annotated corpus for Arabic dialogue language understanding including spoken dialogue and written "chat" dialogue for inquiry-answer domain. The proposed schema handles mainly the request and response acts that occurs frequently in inquiry-answer debate conversations expressing request services, suggests, and offers. We applied the proposed schema on 83 Arabic inquiry-answer dialogues.
Walt Whitman and Arabic Immigrant Poet Gibran Khalil Gibran  [cached]
Feng-min LIN
Canadian Social Science , 2006,
Abstract: Whitman influenced greatly on modern Arabic poetry in general and its prose poetry in particular through Gibran Khalil Gibran, the most famous and important Arabic immigrant poet that had ever lived in America for a long time. We can find in Gibran and Whitman’s works that they shared strong similarity in their poetics and thoughts. Gibran’s prose poetry, first of all, is of the same origin as Whitman’s in his creative language. Both of them are adept at creating original images by ingenious combination of words. In the second place, just like Whitman’s poetry, Gibran’s works possess an awfully aesthetic sense of music. Like Whitman, Gibran uses graceful rhythm to manifest musical aesthetic feeling in his production. In the third place, both of Whitman and Gibran are good at using colors. Some of their poems are almost a collection of colors. Gibran and Whitman also express some similar thoughts in their works. Both of them did not advocate the tradition so much Gibran is as sharp as Whitman in his rebellious spirit. Also, it is very explicit that both of Whitman and Gibran are mystic. We’ll focus our discussion on their characteristics of pantheism and natural occultism. Keywords: Walt Whitman, Gibran Khalil Gibran, Arabic Immigrant Poem, prose poetry Résumé: Gibran Khalil Gibran, comme d’autres poètes et écrivains arabes immigrés aux Etats-Unis, fut influencé par la littérature américaine, notamment par les proses poétiques de Walt Whitman. La création littéraire de ces deux grands écrivains fait preuve d’une grande affinité en innovation linguistique, musicalité textuelle, jeu de couleurs, esprit de révolte et recherche du mystique en constituant une parfaite illustration de la communication et les convergences entre la littérature orientale et la littérature occidentale, et surtout celle de l’acceptation de la dernière par la précédente. Mots-clés: Walt Withman, Gibran Khalil Gibran, Littérature arabe immigrante aux Etats-Unis, Proses poétiques
Poetics and anthropology  [PDF]
Sekuli? Nada
Filozofija i Dru?tvo , 2004, DOI: 10.2298/fid0424095s
Abstract: The entering of poetics into the field of anthropology, intimated by Nietzsche (through his critique of anthropocentrism), introduced by Bachelard and Bataille and continued in the framework of poststructuralism has influenced the scope and the models of knowledge traditionally related to anthropology, by reexamining and changing them. This influence is researched through the analysis of several authors, discussing the political aspects of their writings at the same time. Their notions of polarity, discontinuity, suspension, transgression and dissemination make visible possible directions of transformation of anthropology.
The Poetics of the Ancestor Songs of the Tz’utujil Maya of Guatemala
Linda O’Brien-Rothe
Journal of International and Global Studies , 2010,
Abstract: This essay attempts to define the relationship between a song tradition that survives in the Mayan highlands of Guatemala, and 16th century poetic Mayan literature. This song tradition of Santiago Atitlán, Guatemala is slowly disappearing as the socio-cultural context in which it flourished changes. By comparing the poetics of the song texts (including their rhythmic structure, versification, and use of poetic devices such as assonance, alliteration and onomatopoeia) to the poetics of the Popol Vuh, a K’iché Maya text probably copied from a manuscript that predates the Spanish invasion, a continuity is discovered that places the song texts squarely within the tradition of Mayan literature and suggests common origins.
From C to C: a prepositional poetics
Fred Wah
Ilha do Desterro , 2010,
Abstract: "From Sea to Sea" is an imago mundi that has defined Canada's national consciousness from "the last spike" to the present. It has served to hegemonically override a range of prepositional possibilities that poetry and poetics in our time has used to relocate a citizen imagination. This talk is a critical and poetical reading of some of the most dynamic prepositions in this cultural lexicon that might help locate a more situational discourse of public selves and relationships.
Towards a poetics of the cinematographic frame  [cached]
Des O'Rawe
Journal of Aesthetics & Culture , 2011, DOI: 10.3402/jac.v3i0.5378
Abstract: In delineating a poetics of the cinematographic frame, this essay presents a typology of framing styles, and demonstrates ways in which filmmakers use the frame as an expressive resource—and ways in which the frame uses them. The examples discussed are modernist in orientation, and each has a particular association with a city—its history, architecture, and cultural character. Although it is common practice to refer to various—especially, modernist—framing situations as instances of deframing, the essay also enquires into the problematic nature of this term, suggesting alternative visual and cinematographic contexts more amenable to the deconstructive implications of this term. As the boundaries between cinema and the other arts continue to converge and relations between frame, image, and screen become more complex, this essay offers a reassessment of some first principles of film language, especially the aesthetic integrity of the cinematographic frame.
Arabic Diglossia (A Phonological Study)
Faten H. Amer,Bilal A. Adaileh,Belal A.Rakhieh
Argumentum , 2011,
Abstract: This study investigates the phonological differences between Written Arabic (hereafter WA) and Madani Arabic (hereafter MA) as an aspect of diglossia. The differences identified in this study between WA and MA prove that there is a wide gulf between the two varieties. Many of the differences found are quite common in situations where other different spoken dialects are compared with WA (cf., Blanc 1953, Harrel 1960 and Suleiman 1985). The emergence of the long vowels /e:/ and /o:/, the consonantal changes / / > / /, / / > /t/, /e/ > /z/ or /d/, /d / > / / and /q/ > /?/, and insertion of anaptyctic vowels lead to declusterization and initial cluster formation or some such phonological changes.The trend in Arabic diglossia in general proves to be that there are clear cut linguistic differences between WA and different spoken varieties, on the one hand, and, on the other hand, the distinctive identities of the spoken dialects are also simultaneously maintained. The situation on the whole reflects the maintenance of cultural unity within linguistic diversity among different Arabic communities.
Arabic Interface Analysis Based on Cultural Markers
Mohammadi Akheela Khanum,Shameem Fatima,Mousmi A. Chaurasia
International Journal of Computer Science Issues , 2012,
Abstract: This study examines the Arabic interface design elements that are largely influenced by the cultural values. Cultural markers are examined in websites from educational, business, and media. Cultural values analysis is based on Geert Hofstedes cultural dimensions. The findings show that there are cultural markers which are largely influenced by the culture and that the Hofstedes score for Arab countries is partially supported by the website design components examined in this study. Moderate support was also found for the long term orientation, for which Hoftsede has no score.

The Poetic Laboratory of the Kyiv-Mohylan Poetics. Some Practical Illustrations The Poetic Laboratory of the Kyiv-Mohylan Poetics. Some Practical Illustrations
Giovanna Siedina
Studi Slavistici , 2012,
Abstract: In this paper the Author illustrates different specimens of Neo-Latin poetry produced in the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy’s poetics classes. Although their content and their artistic value vary greatly, depending on their authors (either students or teachers), the interest of these poems lies in their being practical embodiments of the conception of poetry fostered at the KMA and of theoretical prescriptions for poetic style and language imparted to the students of poetics. Besides being an excellent means for learning language, Neo-Latin poetry contributed both to the education of pious men and loyal subjects, and to providing the KMA itself with an ideological foundation and with gravitas as a cultural institution. The analysis of the extant poetic production of students and teachers of the KMA, of which the poems presented here constitute a small portion, shows that the specific participation in European Latinitas cultivated in the humanities class at the KMA and in similar schools played a part in fostering a distinct cultural and national Ukrainian identity.
