A Syntactic Contrastive Analysis of Relative Clauses in Arabic and English in the Government and Binding Framework With Relevance to Translators and Foreign Learners of Arabic

Auther : Moheiddin Homeidi

We try in this paper a syntactic contrastive analysis of the relative structures in both Arabic and English in the Government and Binding framework.

The syntactic framework we adopt is that of Chomsky, N. (1981), Bouchard, D. (1984), Radford, A. (1988), Lasnik.H. & Uriagereka,J (1988), and Haegeman,L. (1993) Since any syntactic analysis takes the sentence as its unit of analysis, we did not move in our analysis beyond this level. Any attempt to try an analysis on the textual or rhetorical level can not be sustained in any formal or even proper syntactic analysis.

We believe that this paper is of prime interest to those interested in deep syntactic analysis of relative structures in both Arabic and English in the Government and Binding theory and to academic translators as well as foreign learners of Arabic.
