Synopsis

What is the Arabic term for "suicide bombing"? What phrase would be used to describe "peacekeeping forces" in the Arab media? Or "economic sanctions"? In light of recent developments in the Middle East, it is essential that scholars, journalists, government workers, military personnel, businesspeople, and diplomats familiarize themselves quickly with Arabic/English translations for many of these key words and phrases. Media Arabic - the language of printed or broadcast news items - emphasizes contemporary terms like multiculturalism or globalization that are not covered by most Arabic dictionaries. This concise and accessible volume provides easy-to-learn lists of the most relevant vocabulary, providing key terms for translating from and into Arabic. Organized by topic, these word lists furnish the reader with an invaluable knowledge of key vocabulary to comprehend, translate, write, and speak Arabic. Topics include: General (reports, statements, sources, common media idioms); Politics; Elections; Military; Economics; Trade & Industry; Law & Order; and, Disaster & Aid.

With access to the most contemporary media vocabulary, guesswork disappears and students and professionals can begin to discuss and understand the most recent developments in the Arab news media.
