Coining Arabic Terms For Land Forms (in Arabic)

Auther : Abdallah Yousef Al Ghonaim

This paper aims at formulating distinctive rules and measures for coining geographic terminology. It also has another objective, namely, finding appropriate ways and means for the elucidation and explanation of various methods of “coinage” in a way that may present a guide to serious geographers to find relevant and convenient terms. This will also assist in avoiding the chaotic usage of terms based on emperical individual efforts.

The paper stresses in particular on terms relevant to land forms which are in most cases controversial and up till now without any consensus among geographers.

The study opens with the delimitation and expounding of the linguistic means and methods that may be depended upon for the coinage of geomorphic terms, through a thorough analysis and critique of commonterms which are in widespread usage, and though mentioning the principles governing the selection of appropriate terms. Such principles are multi-dimensional, since they combine theory with field application and the possibilities of widespread dissemination. In addition, the combination of classical and modern sources is also most imperative, particularly in field investigations.
