This has widened the circle of interest, and thus we chose the novel ‘The Absentee’s Women’ by the Iraqi novelist Mahdi Essa Alsaqr to be a sample for applying the study, which takes the semiotic approach through the use of the procedural mechanisms of Paris School of Semiotics and the critique viewpoint of its founder Grimas.</p> <p>&nbsp;This study starts with an introduction that gives a background for semiotics and its impact on critique to clarify some of certain issues such as the disagreement among critics about its origins definition. Then, the study is divided into three sections: the rhetorical level, the narrative level and depth level. Then comes the conclusion that is about the most important outcome of the study. Finally, we have a list of sources and references.</p> إشراق كامل ##submission.copyrightStatement## Sat, 28 Dec 2019 00:00:00 +0000 Elegies in Abo Tammam’s Poetry to Humaid Al-Tosi and his son Mohamed <p>The study tackles two of the most important poetic elegies to two leaders of the Abbasid Era, Hamid Al-Tusi and his son Mohammed, written by Ali bin Jiblah Al-Akook and Abo Tammam Al-Ta'i.

This variation in colors in the universe and nature shows the differences in the creation of all the creatures. These features were reflected in great presence as well as other sources that manifest in women, wine, gray hair, wars and their tools in the poetic imagination of the Fityan Al- Shaghury. Therefore, this poet produced the finest poetic color images and showed these colors beautifully through symbol and inspiration as a sign of meanings that paints beautiful meanings that the readers agrees with it as being is familiar in the lives of people. Other mentions of the poet manifest in the paradoxes of artistic images of beautiful colors as the point where the base of the rhetorical styles that are combined to form these images, especially metaphor, anaphylaxis, antonomasia, implicit metaphor and diagnostic and visual visions, that had a clear effect in his images, which contribute to the level of rhythmic activity in the creative color imagery.</p> خلود هاشم جوحي الوائلي ##submission.copyrightStatement## Sat, 28 Dec 2019 00:00:00 +0000 Alternation Phenomenon in the Use of Prepositions and Conjunctions in AL- Anaam and AL-Araf Quranic Suras <p>In most cases, the Holy Quran uses language features in the way that contrary to the common standard language to draw the reader's attention. Therefore, we have examined one of the techniques that have been frequent in the Quranic text and its purpose by tackling alternation phenomenon. Alternation means using a word (noun, verb, preposition) interchangeably with another word that is close to its meaning. However, we select alternation of prepositions and conjunctions and we have examined the idea of interchange of prepositions in the Quranic text in order to understand the meaning. The aim of this study is to examine prepositions interchangeability to express the main meanings of each of the items and study modes of prepositions syntactically. This was done through analyzing the main structures and meanings of the structure. The results suggest that preposition interchangeability occurred more in these two sample Quranic verses. Then, the preposition "lam" is repeated frequently. Hence, the high frequency has made this phenomenon a style in these two verses. However, as for conjunctions, we recognized that interchangeability in “fa” and “thomma” was more frequent because of the context in which they are used and this has to change the meaning. This study was conducted using the analytical descriptive method.</p> جواد محـمد زاده, صلاح الدين عبدی ##submission.copyrightStatement## Sat, 28 Dec 2019 00:00:00 +0000 The Creeds’ Controversy <p>Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, and prayers and peace be upon the Prophet Mohammed and his household and companions. &nbsp;&nbsp;The doctrine has a central impact on the building of the individual and the community in view of the behavior of the individual and the community.

The research concluded that the oscillation in its negative and the positive phases did not affect the frequency of trough and ridge and the number of days of duration and direction of its axes, did not show a certain trend in the repetition of wave characteristics, whether the negative or positive. However, there was a difference in the seasonal total of the troughs and ridges, which exceeded the frequency during the negative seasons, while the long waves and the system of trough + ridge were repeated between the negative and positive seasons. As for the number of days of survival, the number of days of survival was greater during the positive seasons and the fluctuations during the negative seasons.</p> بشرى احمد جواد ##submission.copyrightStatement## Thu, 02 Jan 2020 00:00:00 +0000 Efficiency of Al- Sabla Major Irrigation Project and its investments <p>The research deals with al-Sabila major irrigation project, which is one of the large projects that cover large areas of agricultural lands of al-Rifai Agriculture Division to the &nbsp;north of Dhi Qar province and south of Maysan.

This study showed that the expansion of SKIKDA slums areas followed a clear pattern , that they grew and expand with the growth of expanding of the city. The study also discovered that some ethnic groups and families occupy the city surrounding areas and establish the slums houses , and eventually become a local community characterized by ethnic behavior. The more the city expand, the more informal areas expand according to the logic of the response to the appropriate solutions for each. The slums in the city of Skikda are at least part of the development of the city since the late colonial period and the period of independence over the last 50 years. The results of the study &nbsp;also revealed the great dependence on the construction process in acquiring the field as a dominant strategy on family behavior, characterization of neighborhood relations within the house and the factors driving housing in slums areas fluctuate mainly between the problem of housing and personal reasons, both of which are linked on the basis that the narrowness of the family housing and the high degree of congestion leads&nbsp; to the&nbsp; leave of married children seeking private shelter. The acquisition &nbsp;of the urban area within the city is carried out through pockets that are out of sight and are located within the urban environment of the city. Based on the evidence and field data obtained through basic indicators to understand the reality highlighted by the slums of Skikda city, the study found a constant fact that the slum culture in Skikda is a behavior and practice through forms of tenure and adaptation patterns promoted by social upbringing with the characteristics of the random area. This culture has re-established the ingredients of producing and reproducing urban slums with all their ecological features.</p> <p><strong>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Keywords</strong>: Urban,Slums,Ecology,SKIKDA.</p> Brahim Touhami, رياض تومي ##submission.copyrightStatement## Thu, 02 Jan 2020 19:32:55 +0000 Natural and Cultural Heritage and its Tourism Importance in Maysan City, South Eastern Iraq <p>The data was collected through field surveys of natural, archaeological, and religious and heritage sites; as well as visiting of some government institutions to access reports and text available in their libraries.

Her feminist metaphorics is thus shown as rooted in utopianism as best represented in such fictional universes as <em>Herland </em>that, though apparently embedded in the economico-biological utopian theorizing and literature, tends to deviate from and re-contextualize the categorical and genre expectations about the female experience in a man-oriented world and literature. On the other hand, her poetry is energized and governed by the economics of writing that characterizes the feminist writing of all time, and even of the later women-poets; mainly, the urgent impetus to write differently and to procure change. &nbsp;&nbsp;</p> Amer Rasool Mahdi ##submission.copyrightStatement## Thu, 02 Jan 2020 21:23:22 +0000 Developing the Writing Skill of the University of Technology' Students by using Clustering Technique <p>The difficulties in writing are considered one of the most significant problems that have an effect on non-native English speakers.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; This study aims at developing the writing skills by using clustering technique to the University of Technology' students, then making a comparison between students' performance in writing in a per and post-test.

Societal change is required in Iraq that draws importance to the value of time, and this should occur as the process of industrialization and urbanization proceeds at an accelerated pace in the future</p> Fajir J Alwan ##submission.copyrightStatement## Thu, 02 Jan 2020 00:00:00 +0000 The Comparative Study: Social Competence of Children in the United Arab Emirates and Iraq <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p>Physical, psychological, and socio-cultural traits may vary, globalization has increased the range of differentiation through mass movements, developments in communication technology, and the recent penetration of the values of subcultures in dominant cultures, leading to the concept of multi-cultural societies. Comparative studies are becoming increasingly significant in sociological research, as in this study which investigates the differences in children’s social competence within contemporary communities. To understand social competence, researchers must consider its social context. Analysis of the national context of children’s behavior must be developed to understand the culture of the children of a country, particularly, in a world where the phenomena of globalization and convergence are a reality. The present study aims to identify the differences in the levels of social competence of children from Iraq and the United Arab Emirates by administering a social competence questionnaire to 300 children. The results reveal a significant difference.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> آلاء عبد الله الطائي ##submission.copyrightStatement## Thu, 02 Jan 2020 21:45:41 +0000 Unpublished Economic Texts From the Old Babylonian Period <p>The cuneiform texts considered one of the most important resources which play an important role , and help us to know how was the economic , politic and religious conditions , and everything related of the history of Mesopotamia , which contain many information that enrich our knowldgement about&nbsp; Mesopotamia civilization , since using writing as a way to documentation the science and human knowldgement .</p> Shaimaa Nassir Hussain ##submission.copyrightStatement## Thu, 02 Jan 2020 00:00:00 +0000 The Place duality in Emily Nasrallah's narration "The Days of the cat <p>The element of place and its employment within the structure of narration is one of the most important elements and techniques in contemporary narratives, especially in the narratives that concern the subject of war. Wars often occur to control the territory of the adversary. The narratives that shed light on the war and its effects such as destruction, murder and migration focus on Place as a key component. This study aims at addressing the issue of the place and its dualities in Emily Nasrallah's narration "The Days of the cat" (1931-2018), a writer of woman, war and migration, which studies the war and its impacts in this narration from a completely different point of view. It deals with the story of the stray cats and their fate during the war and their relations with the people in particular The boys, on the tongue of special narrator that is a cat named "Zico"</p> <p>One of the most important findings in this study is that the real places in this narration is distributed between the interior and the outside according to the sense that is conveyed to the people in it. Open places aren't a constant source of happiness, and the place can share its roles among itself, depending on its population's sense of place. The place has been employed in narration and its relationship to personalities, to represent the material and spiritual losses that affected it and its residents, and to express human relations in the disasters that were experienced by ordinary combatants and ordinary people, as well as by animals in the midst of the Lebanese civil war.</p> زهرا فرید ##submission.copyrightStatement## Thu, 02 Jan 2020 20:17:10 +0000
