Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with the linguistic model of the šurūḥ, and provides examples of how the šarḥanim translated their sacred texts using translation Mechanisms A and B. It discusses methodological considerations concerning the organization of the examples and demonstrates the dynamic literal/interpretive linguistic tension that characterizes the translations. The chapter explains how calque translations were incorporated into the šurūḥ. The detailed analysis presented here highlights the understanding that the šarḥ created its own Judeo-Arabic grammar and structure. The chapter provides examples that illustrate the complex analysis of understanding the šarḥan's work by using the method of scanning &t;from head to toe&t;. It also presents several examples that can be analyzed on different levels (phrase, word, morphosyntax, and segment) and thereby produce different analytical results. The organization of the examples according to different categories facilitates the examination of the literal/interpretive linguistic tension as well as the translation mechanisms (A and B).

Keywords: šarḥanim; Judeo-Arabic grammar; linguistic model of šurūḥ; sacred texts; translation mechanisms
